Pere Ventura Gran Vintage Cava 2012
Yeasty, bready aromas of briny nectarine show early onset autolysis. This gran reserva brut is plump and round, but low on energy and bead. Flavors of dried papaya and melon include a note of brioche, while this is steady, bready, mature and ready on the finish. Drink now.
A creamy Cava, with soft, citrus peel acidity layered with notes of baked pear, anise and date. Lightly toasty on the subtle finish. Drink now. 2,500 cases made, 250 cases imported.
