Vilarnau Brut Reserva Cava NV ($15)
Vilarnau is a small artisanal handcrafted Cava house located just outside Barcelona Spain.
This Cava is made the traditional way with 50% Macabeo, 35% Parellada and 15% Xarello. It is a dry Cava with soft fruity 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 Cava is a perfect bubbly for the any occassion and goes well with most any food or snack (works really well with popcorn!).
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.
