"Classic, traditional, value. I've been a fan of this well-priced, traditional method sparkling Cava for many years. It has classic style, it's dry on the palate with impressive complexity. Expect aromas of toasted brioche, golden apples and crisp yellow pears with melon, soft floral notes, bright citrus and nutty undertones. Expect a persistent mousse and an echo of the nose with roasted nuts, toasted apple pastries and lemon curd flavours elevated by a creamy weight. An extremely reliable all around great bubbly. Pair:appetizers, roast chicken or turkey, seafood, salty snacks/popcorn/chips, most cheeses."

"I've said it before and I hope to say it many times more: When in doubt go bubbly. While the options are myriad, thanks to quality time spent in Spain this papa will forever be content with receiving bottles of Cava. This is the all purpose sparkling wine - dry, approachable, and ready to tackle many a meal. A bottle like this robust, cirtusy Segura Viudas can be poured in a mimosa and served alongside breakfast in bed, but it also can pair up with a bucket of fried chicken at a picnic."
