This fine Spanish sparkling wine is made using the Traditional Method, in which the secondary fermentation producing a sparkling wine's bubbles occurs in the bottle. Its fresh, toasty nose, beautiful citrus, green apple and mineral flavors, supple, lively mouth-feel, and clean, crisp finish make it the ultimate celebratory wine. Enjoy it on its own and with caviar, sushi, seafood, fried foods and Asian dishes
Varietal Blend: 50% Macabeo, 35% Parellada, 15% Xarel-lo<
"A perennial favorite, this offers clean apple flavors at an unusually affordable price for such a completely dry style. It's a great party pour, or an aperitif to sip with raw clams."
Wine & Spirits
"Bright yellow. Aromas of orange, pineapple and pear, plus a hint of musky herbs. Juicy and very fruity, with crisp acidity and a sharp element of orange zest adding a bitter touch. Finishes clean and brisk, with modest persistence and an echo of candied citrus fruits. This is an incredible value in sparkling wine."

Bought this wine for serving after holiday dinner. Tasted it and was highly impressed. Have since purchased a case each week for hostess and holiday gift giving. Excellent wine which easily rivals Chandon White Star at 1/4 the price. I certainly expect a tremendous increase in the price and soon!
I purchased a bottle of the Brut Sparkling wine and was very disappointed. The smell of the wine was very good and the first taste was good, but subsequent sips gave me the taste of "motor oil". I was very disappointed. Needless to say I threw out the bottle. I have had other inexpensive sparkling wines and never had that taste before. The Monmousseau is very good and in that price range. Has anyone else had this taste sensation?
I try to avoid cheap sparkling wine, as it usually has either a strange "stale candy" taste, or a strange aftertaste. But Cristalino is unbelievable. Prosecco-like and delicious. Highly recommended. The rose is great, too.
