We've moved from loving Prosecco to loving Cava, and this one does not disappoint! Excellent for fun get-togethers.

Screaming green apple on the nose with some butteriness. Crisp acidity with lots of fruit make this a great quaffer.

Cava is made in the same traditional method as Champagne This is a blend of Macabeo, Parellada and Xarel-lo grapes grown in the Penedès region of Spain.

Nose of lemon, white peach, some light bread, applesauce.

Flavours of apple, ripe pear; nice acid. Creamy mouthfeel with a persistent and long-lasting mousse.

Astounding value for the quality, even without the frequent LTOs in Ontario.

A little over priced, but good for everyday drinking. A little too sweet, but nice finish. Yeast is not as predominate as the LCBO is saying.

Fine persistent bubbles in this bright refreshing Cava. Apple, pear, peach, citrus and butter notes. More fruity than yeasty. Doesn't have great depth but nicely balanced and decent length. Excellent value. This sparkler is versatile as an aperitif or a table mate for lighter fare. March 2016.

Zesty nose of white grapefruit, toasted nuts, and a hint of bread. Palate is quite dry with vibrant acidity and creamy mousse. Citrusy essences, pith, and a finish with some bitter almond. Long length. Great value. Mar 2011.

A fine, frothy mousse with appetizing brioche, mushroom, mineral, green apple and lime in the glass; a great party starter
