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. It is a good value for drinking over the next 12-18 months. 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." (04/2010)]  (5/ 2011)

Wine Enthusiast

 Basic peach and melon aromas come with lettuce and white pepper accents. The palate runs a little soft and low on acid and bubbles, while the flavor profile is sweet, with lime and apple at the core. A standard, basic Cava.  (12/ 2011)

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, I could see why. The winery owns most of their vineyards and uses all three of the traditional, indigenous Cava grape varieties: 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.
