Marques de Gelida Brut Exclusive Reserva

Marques de Gelida Brut Exclusive ReservaCava is a sparkling wine from Spain.  Traditionally Cava just referred to a particular style of Spanish sparkling wine, but since 1986 it also means that wine is produced in a specific areas designated as DO Cava.
This Cava from Marques de Gelida uses the traditional Cava grape varieties of Macaubo, Xarel-lo, and Parellada, plus some Chardonnay is in the blend.  As a “reserva” it was aged three years previous to being released.The affect of this cava is a deep straw, showing just a touch of age—which is what it has.  The nose of this wine shows a touch of age too, with a butterscotch aroma layered over yeast and apple.  The aromas are honestly powerful too.  The palate offers crisp acidity with apple and plenty of yeast flavors.  It finishes with a citrus acidity, butterscotch and more yeast.  This is a nice bottle of bubbly.
