Castell d' Olérdola Reserva Cava Brut, DO Penedès, Spain
A blend ofMacabeo, Parellada, Xarel-Lo with 18 months on the lees.
This excellent dry Cava has a very pale primrose transparency and a fine bead. It has a fine delicate aroma, with hints of lemon and touches of butter and yeast from the ageing process. A Cava of great finesse, fruity with notes of toasted brioche from the lees ageing, creamy and silky on the palate, balanced with a fine streak of acidity. With its 18 months to 2 years cellar-age the Cava acquires a good structure and elegant personality.
