Sumarroca Brut Reserva Cava NV

We tried this first at a tasting of Spanish wines at Corks and decided to buy a bottle. This is a sparkling wine that tastes like a very dry champagne. It has a clear, straw color with a very clean bouquet. My wife decided to buy this as a wine for her when entertaining "the girls." It never made it that far as it was used as the first white wine when we had guests over for a tasting last night. The wine is made from estate grown grapes in the Penedes region of northern Spain. All the grapes are harvested at night and the free run juice is used to make the wine. The wine is aged in the bottle for 2 1/2 to 3 years.

This is a very nice wine and very affordable. It retails for about $12.95.
