WOW: New Year's Eve 2015...Just 10 days away!

WOW: Wine of the Week

New Year's Eve 2015...Just 10 days away!
Roederer Estate Cristal Brut 2004
This Cava is awarded five "stars" in our eyes!  There IS still time to get your New Year's Eve Bubbles!  But do NOT wait any longer!  This is the crowd-pleasing, budget-pleasing bubbly you have been waiting to see!  And what could be better than an amazing story to share about it...

"Since 1987, every summer Castillo Perelada hosts one of the most prestigious music festivals in Europe. This cava is a tribute to all the artists who year after year honour us with their presence, shining like the stars of the Empordà sky under which they perform.
Wine has been made at the Perelada since the Middle Ages, as shown in several documents and parchments from the period to be found in the library. When Miguel Mateu bought this ensemble of monuments in 1923, one of his primary objectives was to revitalize the wine producing tradition, a tradition that is more alive than ever these days and which has incorporated the most modern technology to create wines that make full use of the nuances of the soils and vines of the Empordà." - Winery Notes

Castillo Perelada Cava "Stars" Brut Nature N/V Tasting Notes

Pale yellow colour, crystalline and bright. Its generous stream of fine bubbles forms a perfect crown. In the nose it is clean, with fruity notes, and some slight ageing notes. Dry, smooth and complex in the mouth, it has a great tasting balance.
