Avinyo Brut Reserva Cava Penedes

SKU #1044370 89 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 (a blend based on 80% macabeu; Lot 11152): Green-tinged yellow. Pear, nectarine and orange on the expressive nose, with notes of white flowers and honey adding complexity. Smooth and gently spicy, offering deep orchard fruit flavors and a hint of herbs. Turns livelier with air, finishing with very good punch and an echo of ripe pear.  (11/ 2011)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 An excellent value in sparkling wine from Spain, the non-vintage Cava Brut (made from 80% free run juice and aged 18 months) is a tasty, light to medium-bodied, dry sparkler. Notes of bread dough, grapefruit, and other citrus as well as tiny pinpoint bubbles are offered in a refreshing, vigorous style. Enjoy this Macabeu, Parellada, and Xarel-lo blend over the next year.
