Wine Review: Jaume Serra Cristalino (once just Cristalino) NV Brut may not be the flagship of the winery, but it keeps the lights on, and for good reasons. With a glistening pear core color (light straw) and an abundance of stone fruits and wildflowers on the nose this Cava can be easily mistaken for a Californian sparkling wine. The palate is both exciting and enticing displaying bartlett pears, granny smith apples, pineapples and white peaches. The medium size bubbles and bright acidity make this a perfect sipper, or for those that like a good white sangria, a great mixer. Clean and collected. Pairs great with oysters. - Nicolay

Winemaker Notes: This fine Spanish sparkling wine is made using the Traditional Method, in which the secondary fermentation producing a sparkling wine’s bubbles occurs in the bottle. Its fresh, toasty nose, beautiful citrus, green apple and mineral flavors, supple, lively mouth-feel, and clean, crisp finish make it the ultimate celebratory wine. Enjoy it on its own and with caviar, sushi, seafood, fried foods and Asian dishes.
