Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Style, that identity that defines a winery, is reflected in this cava. The search for clarity and purity has produced this sparkling wine with a gentle citric aroma highlighted by hints of white fruits, with all the olfactory elements in perfect balance.

The palate is built on both freshness and concentration: a wine that combines firmness and smoothness with creamy bubbles. A long and very clean finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Pale straw with a frothy mousse. Exotically perfumed bouquet of pear, orange, toasty lees and anise, along with a suave floral quality; smells like a white Burgundy Sappy orchard fruit flavors are complemented by honeysuckle and bitter orange pith, with a strong jolt of iodine. Impressively complex and powerful Cava with a long, smoky, mineral-driven finish."
92 Points

"An opulent cava, this has intriguing complexity that builds out of exotic spice and sweet apple pie. Scents of cardamom and vanilla bean weave in and out of the supple texture, creating an elusive finish. Serve this with scallops on a sea urchin mousse, a preparation from Alberto Herraiz of Fogon in Paris."

Learn About Vintage

Vintage Champagne and Sparkling Wines Vintage Champagne is made in particularly good years with optimum weather and the best grape selection. Some houses, like Dom Perignon, only make vintage Champagne, so they do not produce a wine every year and have no non-vintage bottlings. What makes vintage Champagne better? Well, status for one - many vintage Champagnes are...
