Via De La Plata “Cava Rose”
Cava is Spain’s iconic sparkling wine style, and the Iberian Peninsula’s answer to Champagne. The traditional grape varieties used in Cava were Macabeo, Parellada and Xarel-lo. However, French grape varieties like Pinot Noir and Chardonnay have been allowed to join the Cava party as well.
While the original Cavas were produced exclusively in Catalonia, modern Cava can come from various parts of Spain like Extremadura. Bodegas Via De La Plata produced the Extremadura’s first Cava back in 1983 and has been making beautiful wines ever since.
This elegant yet approachable rosé wine of Garnacha and Pinot Noir by Bodegas Via De La Plata is so refreshing and clean I want to take a bath in it. Gentle aromatics of flowers and lychee greet your nose but big tropical fruits await your mouth. Cashews and bitter toffee linger on the palette as the wine trails off with a dry finish.
This wine really is perfect for any occasion; Brunch, before dinner or just by itself, you’ll find that this cava that will leave everyone happy.
