One night when I was on baby duty and my whife was taking care of the restaurant I went to buy some groceries and cleaning equipment for the house. Surprisingly there was a sale on some sparkling wines ... freixenet, Heidsiek Monopol, some spumante and so on... completely unexpected for this type of establishment, trust me.
The Elyssia had a promotion on ist - The best cava in the world - selling for 11 Euro - fantastic - verdict was done.
So after some time cleaning I sat down and opened this bottle - no vintage on the lable, 10.5 % alc. cool. Fridge temperature.
Fresh, shlightly yeasty nose, trace of the pinot but then more peach and lemon... Very nice mouth feeling - very desolved carbodioxide... the bubbles actually last all through to the stomach. Sex on the beach dark rose, intense colour. Nice Pinot on the palate, mouth full of cava. I am not an expert on Cava nor on champagne wines. But compared to the Piper -Sauvage rose some weeks ago defenitely the better value for money. It has got a nice easy drinking structure, slightly tannined on the tongue but not unpleasant. Full fruit, remains on the tongue for minutes.
I like it. Generously 90 Points because it feels realy good right now. I might drink the whole bottle ;-)
