2017 Avinyó Brut Reserva Cava Catalonia, Spain
This beloved entry into the traditional-method sparkling wines of Catalonia will not disapoint. 60% macabeo, 25% xarel-lo, and 15% parellada from organically-farmed vines planted from 1945 to 2017 at Can Fontanals. The 2017 vintage experienced the warmest temperatures in the past 20 years. The lack of rainfall flavored old vines and produced a wine with balanced fruit and acidity thanks to the cool nights by the coast. Drink this fresh and vibrant wine with aged cheeses, creamy pasta, or anchovies.
