A bargain Champagne Method Vintage Cava, complex and toasty
Hailing from Penedes, the home of Cava, Bodegas Sumarroca makes excellent sparklers that belie the price. Generations of the Sumarocca family have devoted themselves to making Cava. Combining their passion for the land and tenacity in cultivating vines their Cava'´s have bags of personality and character. Carlos Sumarroca, the owner, is one of Spain's most important and awarded agriculturists and together with his wife Nuria bought the 15th century estate in 1982. The enterprising couple set about establishing one of the largest estate-only grown vineyard Cava producers in Spain.
Tasting Note: All those who adore Champagne´s classic fresh brown bread-scented yeasty flavours will love this classy Cava; rich, full complex and toasty. Pale yellow colour. Fresh aroma and fruity and fresh on the palate with fine, pleasant bubbles that perfectly complement the wine's structure.
