Bottle size: 750 ml
Natalie's Score: 94/100
A delightful, flavourful Spanish sparkling wine from one of the country's best producers. This is a fraction of the price of Champagne, and yet performs at that level. Crisp with lime lift and a long fresh finish.
Cava food pairings: panfried panfish, salads, seafood bites, tapas.

|Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
An extremely fresh, crisp, and tasty Cava, presenting aromas of apricot, green apple, and biscuit. The taste is brightly acidic and adds fresh lime to the equation as well. This is a perfect wine to have before dinner, with green salads, or all on its own. I also find the bottle and label very 'classy', making this an exceptional idea for a hostess gift, especially or those that appreciate a great sparkling wine.

A mix of local grapes, Macabeo and Parellada blended with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. If you don't want to splurge on a champagne this is your bottle to buy. Made in the traditional method it has lovely toasty aromas with floral aromas (honeysuckle) and fresh stone fruit - green apple and fresh pear. Serve to your guests on arrival for a fancy dinner or it would also make a nice hostess gift. Tasted November 27, 2016.

Bright with an abundance of bubbles, this glorious Cava would make a perfect pairing with a number of dishes and celebrations. Lemon-biscuit, honey and asian pear dance on the palate. Affordable and delicious. Tasted November 27, 2016.
|Cora Beaulieu rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
This is a Cava with a lovely mix of citrus, green apple and fresh toasty bread notes. Palate is chock-full of flavor. It’s a graceful sparkling wine that delivers large on aromas of baked apple, stone fruit, lemon and orange zest, honeysuckle, toasted almonds, and a hint of minerality. Good traces of fresh lemon, pear yet slightly salty. Finish is medium+ with nutty and salty tastes. Perfect for any occasion.

This Cava has notes of citrus, lime and buttered toast - lots of bubbles, zingy on the palate. Lovely on its own or with any lighter fare - the bottle is classy and eye catching. Great value.

Very interesting aromas: brioche, lemon, and a bit of surprising tropical fruit! Great bubbles that dance in your mouth.
|Made by well-known Cava producer, Freixenet, this Spanish bubbly is elegant, well balanced, creamy and lively lemon on the palate. - Community Wine Reviews|
