Tasting Notes

This full-bodied pink sparkler is reminiscent of cranberries and ripe cherries on the nose. Don't be fooled by its overtly fruity bouquet; the wine is dry and structured on the palate with fabulous acidity and hints of tannin that make it an excellent partner to salmon and tuna.

Staff Pick Notes

Sparkling rosés are a mixed bag: some are exorbitantly priced, others are unbelievable bargains, but all too frequently they leave you wanting just a bit more. Then there are wines like the Avinyó Cava Brut Rosado that have everything. It's from one of the oldest Cava producers in existence, and all of their wines are made from organic estate vineyards and aged extensively before release. This deep pink sparkler is made entirely from Pinot Noir grown in calcareous clay soils from a single vineyard "La Fassina" in Avinyonet del Penedès. The grapes are harvested at night to preserve their naturally high acidity. It exudes tart red berries and grapefruit peel on the palate with a brilliant streak of minerality. Pair with salty starters like taquitos, gambas al ajillo or causa limeña.

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.
