August Wine Pick: Gran Sarao Cava Brut

This WINE PICK of the month was written for the Luke's of Cape Cod website.


Gran Sarao Cava Brut

I've got this thing for sparkling wine. Trying a new one makes me incredibly happy. Of course, the result isn't always good but just the prospect of popping a new one brightens me right up. My wine pick for this month didn't disappoint.

Cava is Spain's version of France's famous Champagne, made using the same carbonation tactics but with native Spanish grapes. The greatest thing about choosing Cava over other sparkling options is its affordability with incredible quality.

Gran Sarao Cava Brut is everything I want out of a bubbly done with the traditional method. Bready and yeasty but with bright apple and tropical fruits like pineapple and banana. Having fried seafood? Oysters? Steamers? Lobster? This Cava will go great with Cape Cod summer cuisine.

QUALITY VS PRICE RATING
Price: $10
Rating: 4/5 = Recommended (what does that mean?)

The bottle used was purchased by myself for the purpose of this unpaid review. To have your wine reviewed follow this link.
