This Cava is amazing. It is my favorite sparkling wine. I used to buy it regularly from Spec's in Texas for around $9/bottle (which is incredible, since I actually prefer it to most other zero dosage champagnes and sparkling wines, which tend to be much more expensive). I am currently having a really hard time finding it in Kansas, where we have moved. I have even tried special ordering it, but so far no local distributors are able to get it. I really hope it becomes available on amazon! I will buy it by the case!
This is a zero dosage sparkling wine, meaning no extra sugar has been added. (Most champagne/sparkling wines have an extra dosage of sugar added in the second fermentation in the bottle. This makes most of them way too sweet for my liking.) It tastes very clean and refreshing. Other affordable zero dosage sparkling wines tend to be either boring, bitter, or suspiciously sweet (perhaps they use sweeter grapes? I don't know.). But this cava is perfect. It has a delightfully crisp (but not sour) taste, slightly umami, without being savory. Very satisfying. I would drink this wine every day if I could get my hands on it!
Aside from the taste (which is excellent, and reason enough to love this wine), I have never had a hangover or headache from drinking this wine. I typically cannot drink more than one small glass of wine without really suffering the next day. However, my husband and I regularly split a bottle of this between the two of us in one sitting without feeling any ill effects. On one occasion, I finished the entire bottle myself over a long evening, and I felt fine the next day.
