Staff Pick Notes

Cava has become a broad, varied category, and much depends on the producer. Bohigas has been family-owned since the 13th century. They carefully grow and vinify the traditional grapes of Cava (Xarel-lo, Macabeo and Parellada,) and not to worry, there isn't a quiz later. Extended lees contact for 24 months and secondary fermentation in the bottle imparts richness, body and a touch of toast. The impression is far from heavy, however, with vibrant aromas of Honeycrisp apples and lemon blossom and a brilliant streak of acidity on the palate. With its fine mousse, you could easily mistake this for a Blanc de Blancs Champagne..... and then smile when you look at the price!

Astor's Glossary of Terms

Cava

Dry, delicious Cava is an excellent Champagne alternative. The best examples are aged on the lees (the spent yeast cells used in fermentation) and show complexity to rival that of the best Champagnes.

Xarel-lo

Growing primarily in the northeastern region of Catalonia, Xarel-lo is most famous for its role in the production of the Spanish sparkling wine known as Cava (along with Macabeo and Parellada). Xarel-lo is occasionally bottled on its own as a deliciously crisp still wine, frequently filled with notes of stone fruits and herbs.

Parellada

Along with Macabeo and Xarel-lo, this is one of the three grapes that make up the traditional Cava blend. Occasionally blended with better-known varieties (e.g. Sauvignon Blanc) in delightful still whites, Parellada yields light and firmly acidic wines with pleasing floral aromas.

Macabeo

An internationally popular cocktail made with tequila, lime juice, and orange liqueur. Its origin has never been definitively proven, but it was invented sometime between 1930 and 1950, probably in Mexico.
