Gran Sarao Brut Cava Penedes

SKU #1032940

It's back! One of our most successful Cavas ever has finally made its return to K&L. Made with the traditional varietals of Xarel-lo, Parellada, Macabeo and a touch of Chardonnay, this partyfresh bubbly spends 12-15 months on its own yeast before disgorgement. Nicely delineated notes of fresh bread dough, apricot, Granny Smith apples and wet stone are ever-apparent here. And yes, the bubbles are tiny. Grab a case of this to hide around the house in the event of spontaneous partying." (Bryan Brick, K&L Wine Merchants) According to Robert Parker: "Gran Sarao’s N.V. Brut contains 10% Chardonnay in addition to the standard Cava varieties. It has an excellent nose of biscuit, apple, and floral notes leading to a dry, fruity mid-palate. This well-balanced bubbly has a lengthy, refreshing finish. " (04/10)

This is produced by a well-run cooperative, which also happens to make one of Spain’s most beloved cavas, Mont Marcal. Crisp, clean, Granny Smith apple flavors make this an ideal budget sparkler for any occasion.
