Bodegas Sumarroca, Cava Brut Reserva, Catalunya, Spain
Cava was the go-to sparkling alternative before Prosecco came along and stole the thunder. The 80's, those were the good old days!! But Cava is back and better than ever, at least in the case of wines from Bodegas Sumarroca and others who have refocused on quality over quantity. All Cava is made using the traditional method, as used in Champagne, the time in bottle on lees adding complexity and depth of flavour. This wine from Carlos and Nuria Sumarocca is an elegant, balanced wine, work in the vineyards drawing on Carlos’ extensive viticultural experience. Dry but with lovely fruit it is the perfect aperitif, ideal for sharing with friends, and great to drink with rice, salads and seafood and any asparagus dish.
