Wine Review: This white gold colored Cava from Bohigas opens with persistent and random small and medium sized bubbles. The bouquet features green apple, ripe nectarine, and bread dough with hints of lemon zest. On the palate, it is medium bodied with integrated medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, smooth and creamy with the crisp acidity adding freshness. The flavor profile is a chamomile tea, chalky minerality and lime zest blend with notes Anjou pear and ginger. We also detected hints of brioche and lemon. The finish is rather dry and refreshing. We would pair this easy drinking sparkler with crab cakes. Enjoy – Ken & Mark

Winemaker Notes: Pale yellow. Fine bubbles forming a constant rosary and persistent crown. Very fresh aroma of white fruit (tart apple and pear) on notes of citric rind and white flowers. Spicy bouquet due to ageing (cinnamon) and biscuits. A structured cava on the palate, well balanced acidity that tenses the whole from beginning to finish. The bubbles give a sensation of creaminess, providing volume and softness to the structure bestowed by the acidity and extending the aromas of white fruit and spices that repeat on the palate. Balanced finish that harmonizes its acidity, leaving behind a sensation of freshness and volume due to its slight content in sugars. Pair with fish, rice dishes and dried fruit and nuts.
