Golden straw color. Aromas and flavors of ripe tangerine, chamomile, honey, dried peach, caramel, and straw with a silky, vibrant, finely carbonated, dryish light body and a smooth, interesting, medium-length finish revealing nuances of toasted almond croissant with crunchy tannins and light oak flavor. A palate-pleasing Cava.

Brut

Serve in a Champagne Flute
Brut is a term that defines dryness levels in sparkling wines; it is most famously used for Champagne, but it is a common term used around the world for most sparkers.

While Brut means "dry" for all intents and purposes, it can actually be off-dry or even lightly sweet. The definition of Brut for Champagne is between 0-12 grams of residual sugar, so Brut actually describes a range of sensations.

No matter how dry a Brut sparkling wine actually is in technical terms, it is generally dry enough to serve at the dinner table with most foods.
