Naveran Brut Vintage has expressive and zesty floral, toasted bread and citrus aromas. Tangy, suave, light and clean citrus and stone fruit flavors on the palate have a fresh and crisp character. Tasted blind, it's easy to mistake this for great Champagne.
Naveran Brut Vintage is a grower Cava that spends 18 months on its lees after fermentation in the bottle to achieve greater depth, complexity and the fine, delicate and long lasting bubbles, called mousse by the French, an indication of a sparking wine's quality.
Cavas are very versatile as an apéritif before the meal, to accompany dessert afterwards and (surprise!) to enjoy during the meal. This Naverán Brut Vintage will pair with soft cheeses, fresh fruit, white meats (pork and chicken) and even richly flavored red meats. This Cava is great for sipping on its own, especially for receptions and other "standing up" events.
The 2010 Cava Brut Vintage is a blend of 50% Xarello, 30% Macabeu and 20% Parellada grown at 400 meters and aged for 18 months on its lees. It has a vigorous mousse in the glass, while the nose is crisp and well-defined with attractive notes of white peach and honeysuckle. The palate is taut and crisp with a keen citric thread that leads to a fresh, green apple and apricot-tinged finish. This is good Cava at a great price. Drink now.
