  • Brut Valdelavia Cava Spain

    Snoothrank:

    usually not a fan of sparkling wine, but this one proved to be spirited, mildly dry, not too tart and pleasant. Read More

  • Pares Balta Brut Nature

    Snoothrank:

    Decent, organically sourced Cava; nice effervescent which keeps on bubbling - better than some Champagne in this regard. Tends to citric notes (lemon peel, with some root-like bitterness). Less balanced than past incarnations, but decent value. Clean. 86. Read More

    Wine review by Richard NL


  • Roger Goulart Cava Brut Gran Reserva 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Creamy vanilla and buttery brioche notes with soft and fleshy melon and peach aromas on the nose. Tart, zesty and flavorful on the palate, this brings nice citrus notes of lemon and grapefruit with hints of green apple and pear and a fresh acidity and stinging bubbles adding freshness.90 pts Read More

    Wine review by Snooth Editorial


  • Apples, gourds, and snifters of port are right around the corner. Let’s ... varieties such as Macabeo, Parellada and the Xarel·lo, yet during my visit to their impressive winery, I had a chance to try their sparkling Segura Viudas Cava Rosé, made with 90% Trepat and 10% Garnacha. What is Trepat? Well, that was my question too! It is a local va... Read More
