Cygnus U Mes U Fan Tres (1+1=3) Brut Nature Reserva Cava, Penedès D.O., Spain: Toasty and earthy rather than fruity Spanish sparkling wine. Still refreshing at an exceptional price. Cava is the Spanish term for bubbly and translates to "cave." Buy by the caseload for holiday parties. Love the refreshing acidity here to enjoy this wine as an aperitif or companion to fried chicken. This sparkler is a blend of 40% Parellada, 30% Macabeo and 30% Xarello grapes and the producer uses the classic Champagne method for the second fermentation in the bottle. Drink: 2017-2019. 352856 11.50% XD 750 mL  $16.95 Score: 91/100. May 27, 2017 Best Value Sparkling Wine. Outstanding Organic Wine Full Review
Santa Alicia Tierra Sur Brut Sparkling, Bío Bío Valley, Chile: A crisp, toasty Chilean sparkling wine from a winery well-known for its excellent price-quality ratio. The valley experiences powerful winds and a lot of rain, but it's also a cool climate that makes for terrific sparkling wines like this one. Pair with shellfish and fresh seafood.
