Vilarnau Brut Reserva Rosé Cava ($16)
Vilarnau is a small artisanal handcrafted Cava house located just outside Barcelona Spain.
This Cava is made from Trepat, a red-wine grape variety indigenous to northeastern Spain, and Pinot Noir. It is a dry Cava with delicate flavors. It is classified as a "Reserva" because it was aged for 15 months.
The bottle art honors the winery's Catalon roots with avant-garde imagery of Antoni Gaudi.
Vilarnau is one of several family-owned wineries of Gonzáles Byass. Established in 1835, their wineries span across most of the important wine producing regions of Spain.
This Vilarnau Brut Reserva Rosé Cava is a perfect bubbly for the holidays and beyond. I'm thinking about this one again for Valentine's Day!
Give it a try. It's a really nice Cava and, as with all Behind the Cork™ - Wine of the Week features, a great value.
