Reviews and Ratings

Travis Oke rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

We always pick up several bottles of this when it's released. The prettiest salmon-pink colour of any cava. Strawberries, cherries, and a crisp finish make this bubbly a family favorite.
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This sparkling wine is just fresh strawberries galore. Strawberry and citrus zest overtake the nose and palate. There is a touch pepperyness to it as well (white pepper). The acidity is high and puckering with a short pithy citrus finish. Try pairing with seared tuna.
Bright scarlet pink color. Strawberry-cherry jam on toast aromas follow through on a round, bubbly entry to a fruity medium body with spicy blueberry compote and delicate herb notes. Finishes with a crisp, mineral and citrus marmalade fade. Very nice and a great match for spicy Asian tuna dishes or sushi. Special Designation: Highly Recommended. Score: 89.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
