Grape(s): Macabeo, Chardonnay
Localization: Cava, Catalonia, Spain
Tasting Notes: Brilliant yellow. White peach, pear, and a hint of tangerine on the perfumed nose. Silky and seamless on the palate, offering sappy orchard and pit fruit flavors that tighten up on the back half. Lingers nicely on the supple finish, which leaves a subtle floral note behind.
The Domain: Isaac Fernández Selección is a unique collaborative venture between two individuals – Isaac Fernández Montaña one of Spain’s most acclaimed winemakers and Aurelio Cabestrero whose vision and commitment helped bring Spanish wines to the forefront in the United States. They work at rediscovering forgotten regions of superior terroir and maximizing the potential from old vines of indigenous grape varieties in a number of regions.
In 2013 they launched Biutiful Cava, the traditionally produced sparkling wine of Spain with two expressions, a Brut Nature that is bone-dry and a Brut Rose. The wine name is pronounced "beautiful", just as it would be spelled en español. In 2014 they added a Brut expression.
Life often is beautiful with a glass of sparkling wine in hand. These wines aim to bring that beauty to your glass.
