RESERVA BRUT CAVA Traditional method, vegan, DO, Spain
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer VILARNAU BARCELONA
This REPEAT is not quite up to the recommended best buy that was last released on June 26, 2021 at $15.95. Assessed from a NEW BOTTLE just purchased at the LCBO. Bright medium-plus straw colour with some extremely tiny bubbles. Fairly intense, fresh, slightly spicy, attractive, somewhat floral, ripe, apple-melon-lemon puree fruit with some hints of yellow hot-dog mustard. Fairly dry, medium to medium-light bodied, well balanced, slightly spicy, very fresh, harmonious, ripe lemon-melon-apple fruit flavours with a lingering, fairly crisp, mineral-tinged, fairly effervescent, fairly bitter finish. An organic blend of 50% Macabeo, 35% Parellada and 15% Xarello, it has 11.5% alcohol and 9 g/L residual sugar with a new lot number 0130921-L21256 on the back label. CSPC 515254
