Grape(s): Xarello, Parellada, Macabeo
Localization: Cava, Catalonia, Spain
Tasting Notes: Spiced apple and toast aromas are clean and direct. On the palate, it's malic and citric, with lime and white grapefruit flavors. A citrusy finish with a note of salt maintains freshness.
Food pairing: Ideal as an aperitif, it pairs beautifully with tapas, rice-based dishes and pasta with creamy sauces.
89 Points Vinous: Light bright yellow. High-pitched lemon, green apple and honeysuckle scents, along with a spicy ginger nuance. Nervy and light on its feet, offering zesty citrus fruit flavors that deepen on the back half. The floral quality repeats on the nicely persistent finish, which is firmed by a snap of dusty minerality.
