2016 Cava Brut Nature Reserva (Mas Codina)
Mas Codina, Cava Brut Nature Reserva, Penedes, Spain 201650% Macabeu, 35% Xarel-lo, 10% Chardonnay, 5% Pinot Noir VERY DRY, BRIGHT, JUICY & FRESH. LEMON & MINERAL, BUT ACCESSIBLE From the Alt Penedes region of Catalonia, which is the highest elevation region where fine Cava is made, comes this serious but fun (serious fun!?!) Brut Nature. These are the driest of all sparkling wines. Toni Garriga spent the afternoon walking me around his vineyard planted by his family in the 1600's, tasting in his cellars and introducing me to his wife and dog. Nice guy, brilliant wines, amazing history! Serving suggestions: Trout with caper butter. Moules Frites. Oysters Rockefeller.
