Los Monteros Cava Brut
Los Monteros Cava Brut, NV
A crisp fresh, fruit driven Cava with plenty of flavor! One of our best selling sparkling wines!
Produced from, carefully selected, grapes grown in the vineyards of Requena and picked early September. Following a cold maceration in pneumatic presses, the must is fermented in stainless steel tanks at 57ºF (14ºC). In January, a process called 'tiraje' takes place where the new wine is bottled and the second fermentation occurs in the bottle. The cava is stored in 'rima', special containers for holding the bottles in position, for a minimum of nine months before being disgorged, receiving a dosage, and being labeled.
Pale yellow in color with green tones, the nose is very clean with delicate floral notes. The palate is creamy – from the fine mousse, well balanced with citrus flavors and a long finish.
Ideal as an aperitif, to accompany starters and light, not overly sweet, desserts. Best served chilled.
Wine Enthusiast, November 2018 – 86 pts. Best Buy – "Aromas of yeast, flowers and green melon carry the nose. The palate brings pear, apple and melon flavors in front of a steady finish." (Michael Schachner)
