THE GOLDEN LEAVES RECOMMENDED WINE JANUARY 2016
10 Feb 2016
ANNA DE CODORNÍU CAVA BRUT
Available at Mas y Mas Supermarkets priced at 8·35€ Even though Christmas and New Year are now behind us, with the Three Kings just about to arrive, there are still plenty of good reasons for drinking Cava and this is why Anna de Codorníu has been selected as the first Golden Leaves Wine Recommendation.
A super start to 2016! Anna de Codorníu is definitely one of the better blended Cavas. The three main traditional cava grape varieties – Parellada, Macabeo and Xarel.lo are used in this blend, but with the addition of Chardonnay, the darling of Champagne.
The result is an aromatic cava, with typical patisserie notes along with some white flower fragrance and just a little citrus and green apple on the nose, as well as the palate.
A cava for all occasions! Enjoy!
