Masia Parera, Brut Reserva Cava D.O.
Brut Reserva Cava D.O.

 

Tasting Notes: A fascinating, storied family, the Giró family has deep roots in the Penedes region of Spain, and also in the Champagne region of France. In a word, they are cultured, distinguished people making cultured, distinguished wine, and have for at least five generations. In that span, they have acquired a mastery of Cava, with this Brut a prime example. Delicate perlage, deep minerality, and intoxicating white flower and baby mushroom aromas make this wine memorable and delightful. Not disgorged until it is ordered, this is a serious methode champenoise at a great value!
