Pale salmon orange color. Aromas of southern biscuits with honey butter, strawberry preserves, and citrus leaves with a satiny, vibrant, finely carbonated, dry light-to-medium body and a smooth, captivating, medium-length gravel, hints of apricot, lemon curd, and almond skins finish. Inviting, toasty aromas beckon the imbiber into this cheerful Cava; pair liberally.

Cava

Serve in a Champagne Flute
Cava is a term that refers to Spanish sparkling wine. The word means "cave" or "cellar"; while it is used for bubblies across the country, most examples come from Catalonia in the Penedes region in northeast Spain.

Cava is produced according to the classic method used in Champagne, although aging requirements are much shorter. While a few producers use Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, the most common varieties in Cava are Macabeo, Paralleda (white) and Monastrell (red). Cava can be made as a white or rosé; the latter category is produced with the addition of red wine.

Most examples of Cava are value-oriented, costing between $12 and $15 on US retail shelves. Several large producers have made greet strides in this market and their entry level wines are meant for immediate consumption, while their special cuvées can age for three years or longer. Use Cava for an aperitif or for a moderately priced sparkling wine to accompany lighter seafood or poultry.
