Bertha Cava Brut Nature Reserva
Grapes: Macabeo, Xarel·lo & Parellada
Color: light golden rays of sunshine
Nose: light and sparkly. Hints of apple and pear but not something whacking you in the head. It and the light floral are just lovely, springy. Some slate/mineral/salt delicate
Taste: Apple tartness, toasty, honeysuckle, clean, fresh, mineral, and beautiful tingly bubbles
I’m a huge cava fan. Every glass takes me back to Barcelona/Spain. I know a lot of people think of it as a touristy place, but heck I live in Brooklyn/NYC. In each big city, there are neighborhoods of lovely people. Just take the time to meet them, share stories with them, you never know you might make a friend. I love all the wonderful people I have met over the years in BCN, all the creative and homey restaurants and bars, and all of the amazing wines I’ve been introduced to…Barcelona, I miss you, I love you, and I hope one day to be back again.
Pairs with Cheez-Its: Makes the apple even more crisp and tightens the mineral/I just licked a rock flavor. Yes, I have licked granite just to find out if it smelled like it tastes, and that was as a kid. Yep, I loved tasting everything as a 5 year old when most would scrunch up their face and say, “No mom, no I’m not eating that!”
