N/V 1+1=3 Cava Brut
Yes, more sparkling wine. This one from Spain retails for about $12. The producer’s math is terrible but how does their wine hold up?
The nose has lemon and that’s about it.
Tart and a bit toasty on the palate. Lots of lemon zest and grapefruit. A lot of US sparkling wine has a touch of sweetness, even in Bruts, this one is bone dry (not a bad thing).
The finish lingers with a bit of citrus...mainly grapefruit.
Not bad for the price, but certainly not great. There’s just not a whole lot happening in this one.
