- Finca Valldosera Cava Brut Nature NV Product #23944 (In Stock)
The price-quality-ratio here is just absurd. Toasty and yeasty on the nose then fantastically complex apple and golden fruit flavors with plenty of yeast/bread dough flavors. Stunning levels of fruit for a no-dosage wine and the kind of creamy, silky, texture normally only found in $40 Champagne. Super friendly, you can drink this like Prosecco if you like, but it's more than sophisticated enough to warrant close attention.
"Finca Valldosera is a boutique producer (5000 cases total production) of high-class Cava. All three of the above Cavas are Brut Nature meaning they have received zero dosage. The Non-Vintage Brut Nature is a blend of 45% Xarel-lo, 30% Macabeo, 10% Parellada, 10% Chardonnay, and 5% Subirat Parent with 10% of the Xarel-lo barrel-fermented and aged. The wine remained sur lie for 24 months and was hand-riddled. It offers up an enticing nose of brioche, smoked nuts, and assorted white fruits. Displaying small persistent bubbles, a smooth texture, and excellent balance, this tasty Cava over-delivers in a big way."Wine Advocate 90 points

The review below is from a releases ago, but still spot on!
"The Non-Vintage MS 4.7 Gran Reserva Brut Nature is the same blend as the Brut Nature cuvee but was selected from the estate’s best vineyards and spent 30 months sur lie. A bit deeper in color and more refined aromatically, it reveals an alluring palate of lemon-lime, toasted almonds, and floral notes. Mouth-filling and impeccably balanced, this superb Cava is an outstanding value meant for drinking over the next 2-3 years."Wine Advocate 91 points
