Macabeo Xarel Lo Parellada

Raventos i Blanc

de Nit Rosé Cava Blend 2020

We opened this beautiful Cava, the 2020 Ravantós i Blanc Conca del Riu Anoia Extra Brut Cava Rose. From Catalonia Sant Sadurni D'Anoia, Spain. A blend of 44% Xarel-lo, 39% Macabeo, 12% Parellada and 5% Monastrell.

On the nose is strawberry, lemon, white peach, lime peel, almond and a bit of minerality.

On the palate there is strawberry, citrus, lemon, lime peel, tarragon, hazelnut, yellow apple and minerality.

This wine is medium bodied with an onion skin color with a bone dry mouthfeel medium + to high acidity that leaves us with a long fresh citrus wet rock finish. At $23 you can't go wrong. This will hang with the best sparkling wines. I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend please stay safe and healthy heading into this week ahead. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂

Cordon Negro Extra Dry Cava Macabeo-Xarel-lo-Parellada

Not overly experienced with the bougie bubbles, but I bought this after hearing someone use Prosecco and Champagne interchangeably for the millionth time. Was just hoping for better, and the Total Wine tag suggested a quality experience. Thoroughly enjoyed this! It was more on par with a nice dry white and had fizz a plenty. Would buy again. — 8 months ago

Kuivan pirtsakka; hieman paahteinen. Oikein hyvä ja kypsän ja laadukkaan makuinen jo itsenäänkin! — 5 months ago
