Tasting Notes

Fresh and creamy on the palate, this Cava is an ideal combination of vivacity, fruitiness and a more serious chalky mineral. A fine bead makes for an elegant partner alongside a spicy tuna canapé.

Staff Pick Notes

Can Suriol is a jewel of a find. They make classic estate cava in the village of Grabuac in the Penedès DO. This brut nature is deliciously satisfying with a little more complexity than you might expect. The palate is tangy and minerally with notes of ripe quince, kumquat, and star apple. Brut nature denotes no dossage added, but this wine is balanced well between tart fruit and savoriness. Can Suriol is a family-owned and operated estate in the Castell de Grabuac that has roots going back to the sixteenth century. They have farmed organically since the nineties and use renewable energy sources, including solar power, as much as possible. Pick this bottle up when you need that crisp satisfaction that only bubbles can provide. Pair with paella de mariscos.

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.
