Freixenet Cordon Negro, Cava, Spain – LCBO $13.25
This sparkling is a wonderful example of a Spanish Cava. Cava is a wonderful style of sparkling similar to champagne but it is a fraction of the cost. This one here has a beautiful gold hue to it and has notes of green apple, grapefruit, and minerals. On the palette, this bubbly is dry with a crisp acidity and creamy bubbles making this wine very soft. The flavours match the nose but has a more toasty note on the finish. Enjoy this on its own or as an aperitif.
Thanks for reading!
