A great value sparkling wine from Valencia. This Cava is aged for much longer than most (16 months) and no sugar is added (Brut Nature) so it is very dry. Fresh, clean and lemony this is great with most tapas and also hard sheep cheese like Manchego.
Cava is a sparkling wine usually made from native Xarello, Parellada and Macabeo grapes. Most Cava is produced in Catalonia, but unusually this one comes from Valencia. Flavours are quite neutral with some citrus, earth and petrol notes.
Pago de Tharsys owner Vicente Garcia is considered the Godfather of Valencian Cava. His vineyards are on a higher plateau at Requena, giving a cooler microclimate to ripen Chardonnay, Macabeo, Parralleda and Xarel.O giving his Cava’s great balance and freshness.
Valencia is a province located at the center of Spain’s sunny east coast, perhaps better known for oranges (and paella) than wine. Valencia’s administrative center is the city of the same name, Spain’s third largest and the Mediterranean’s largest port. Traditionally, the region’s wine portfolio has been spread across various styles. These include easy drinking reds, whites and rosés and fortified moscatels. The province also produces a small quantity of sparkling Cava.
With good acidity and neutral flavours this wine is very versatile and tastes much better when served with food. Good with assorted tapas and fish, poultry and pork dishes. Especially good with Manchego or Spanish Omelette.
