Mas La Mola "L'Atzar", Cava Brut Nature - 2018

Item # 35520 750mL

The Mas La Mola winery is located outside of Barcelona in the region of Penedès. This Cava is a sparkling wine that's dry in style and lends itself magically to seafood dishes: a raw bar is ideal. What gives this Cava finesse is the extended aging in bottle before release - 22 months - more than your average bottle of Champagne.

Staff Pick Notes

This is a crisp and refreshing Cava! Perfect for an aperitif or to have with your favorite kind of oyster! Mine are Island Creek Oysters from Massachusetts. A fine mineral streak, citrus and hint of toasty yeast make for a complex sipper. Cava is a great quality choice with the right price! The more bottles the merrier!

Spain

Central to the Spanish winemaking philosophy is the belief that wine should be released only when it is ready to be consumed, and not a moment before.

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.
