I must admit I rarely use to drink bubbly wines but have recently come to appreciate them. For some meals they really do pair very well. Quiche, some fish etc. And they don’t have to be expensive. Italian prosecco’s for example and in this case, Spanish cava. Pale in color with a mild nose with some citrus and minerally notes. On the mid pallet this is a dry wine, with nice fine bubbles making it food friendly. There’s some light citrus notes and some minerality. It’s a mild wine with a finish on the lighter side of medium. I would give it an 88 or so. Not bad for the price. We paired it with a perfectly cooked pan fried pickerel and it went very well. Thanks Raines 🙂
