Castillo Perelada Brut Cava Penedes

SKU #1050067 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The Non-Vintage Brut Reserva displays small bubbles, a yeasty, fruity nose, and a sense of elegance...Castillo Perelada's finest wines are their deluxe still wine cuvees from the DO of Emporda where their magnificent estate (a must for tourists) is located. However, they also produce very good Cavas in a variety of styles. [Additional notes: "As Champagne prices have soared due to the weak dollar, Cava sales have taken off dramatically. Concurrently, the quality of Cava seems to have improved noticeably over the past several years so the new popularity of Cava may not be just a passing fancy. The Cavas del Castillo Perelada portfolio offers solid quality at fair prices." (JM)  (5/2011)

Wine Spectator

 Apple and peach flavors are underscored by a light petrol note in this round sparkler, which is firm and dry on the finish.  (7/2007)

K&L Notes

Castillo de Perelada Cava is the Cava of kings. No, it literally is. This is what "El Rey" serves at all official state functions. After tasting it, you'll see why. The winery owns most of their vineyards and uses all three of the traditional, indigenous Cava grapes: Macabeo, Parellada, and Xarel-Lo, all grown in the region's chalky soil. Bright citrus aromas, in particular a lovely tangerine note, all stand out on the nose. Similarly zippy and fresh flavors on the palate cut a lively impression and would make for a wonderful toasting Cava or a delicious sparkler to have on hand for all seasons.
