Wine Type: Sparkling Wine

Natalie's Score: 88/100

This Spanish sparking wine uses the traditional method of the second fermentation in the bottle, as they do in Champagne. The flavour profile is distinctly different and weird in a good way wit strange floral notes and lemon baking spice.

Food pairings: lightly spiced curry dishes, lamb stew, white turkey meat, tacos.

Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A dry Spanish sparkling wine made in the same traditional method as Champagne. Shows a fine mousse with a fresh apple nose. Bright green apple, citrus lemon and a touch of biscuit on the palate with a refreshing, crisp, long citrus zest finish.
Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Gorgeous wine featuring fresh cut flowers, grapefruit pith, apple and candied lemon. Perfect with seafood or on its own. 89 Points. (ottawawinejournal.com)
The 2011 vintage of A Priori Brut is a Spanish sparkling wine blend of Macabeo, Chardonnay, Riesling, Gewurztraminer and Muscat grapes. The wine is matured in the bottle for 2 years in contact with its lees for 24 months for added depth and texture. This wine has seven grams of residual sugar, but is still dry and refreshing. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
