Natalie's Score: 91/100

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.

Cava food pairings: turkey, cheese, shellfish.

Reviews and Ratings

L.J. Palmer rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

An organic brut nature Cava from Penedès Spain. Brut Nature" indicates that this wine was made without dosage, i.e., the sweet wine added to traditional-method sparklers just prior to bottling to offset the high acidity making it exceptionally crisp and bright with bracing acidity. Pronounced aroma of sweet apple and pear with a touch of citrus and lots of fine bubbles. Apple and pear taste continues to the palate, along with a nice, bright and refreshing mouth feel. We had this with Swiss cheese fondue, including grapes, crisp apple and spicy sausage for dipping. Wonderful match.
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

An organic Cava with a fine mousse and a nose of biscuit, fresh cherry, slight citrus and vanilla. The palate gives fresh cherry, biscuit and lemon, with a fresh finish.
Cygnus Brut Nature Reserva is a Cava made with organic wine grapes. The blend is 40% Parellada, 30% Macabeo and 30% Xarello grapes reduced in the classic Champagne method for the second fermentation in the bottle. This sparkler is zesty and bone dry with berry and biscuit notes. Easy to drink. - Community Wine Reviews
