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 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.
