Sparkling Wine of the Week: Castillo Perelada Stars

IMG_0639

I first discovered Castillo Perelada many years ago when I was writing up wineries for an importer’s website. At the time I remember thinking that it looked like a dreamy place to visit. I loved reading about it and its history but did not have the chance to taste their wines. At the recent Penin Guide tasting in May however, I did just that. I was blown away but their Cavas. I love sparkling wine and I love Cava in general but this one was really very special. Brut Nature means very little residual sugar which I really appreciate because I am very sensitive to RS. Made from the three traditional Cava varieties, Parellada (60%), Xarello (25%), Macabeu (15%). This wine is the essence of summer to me. Saludos.
