Cava, Spain's answer to sparkling wine, is made using the methode champenoise, and has often been overlooked by many consumers compared to sparkling wines from other parts of the world, like Italy. This textbook example of Cava, with aromas and flavors of apple, toasted biscuit and almond, is a great introduction to these delectable wines. Enjoy a glass on its own, or with fried oysters for a surprisingly delightful pairing!
