Tasting Notes

Cava from Somontano and made from a blend of Chardonnay, Xarel-lo, and Parellada. The bubbles are not too aggressive and add a delicacy to the aromas of fruit: quince and apples dominate. This Cava works with more than just seafood; try it with fried chicken.

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.
