Lately I’ve been gravitating more and more to the sparkling wines of the world. In part because it is a category that I have neglected somewhat over the years in my pursuit of other vinous interests. Also, I’m drawn by many of the surprisingly affordable offerings from Spain that have turned out to be really lovely. We have many new Cavas (which simply denotes a Spanish sparkling wine made in the traditional, bottle-fermented method) and they surprised me with their bright fruit and lively flavors. This particular Cava was brought to us as a side project of one of our wholesale suppliers, and I frankly figured it was a private label without a real story behind it. We loved the wine so we took the chance, brought it in, and customers were immediately drawn to it. Possibly the handsome, modern packaging had something to do with that, but it turns out that the wine is even better than we thought. The bright fruit and snappy acids make this a complete winner at home as well as on our tasting bench. And, we learned later, that it comes from a historical but small winery just outside of Penedes (ground-zero for Spain’s greatest Cavas), in a small town technically in Tarragona, just outside Barcelona. We knew we were on to a good thing when we brought this in, but now that we’ve had it here for a while, grown to know it, taken a few bottles home, it has very quickly become our goto Cava. I recognize that this isn’t the typical way to sell a wine, but I ask you to take the chance, like we did, bring a bottle home, get to know it. I’m pretty sure you’ll end up being more than pleasantly surprised. - Andy Hall, Wine Consultant (Staff Selection, Fall 2017)
