Now that spring is in full bloom, we’re toasting the arrival of May with a Gran Sarao Cava Rosé! This was an easy choice. Because we’ve been cava fans for years and rosé lovers for as long as I can remember, combining the two just heightens the entire experience.
As you approach this sparkler, your eye is teased by its intense red currant hue. The frothy top from a generous pour draws you closer for the scent of red fruit with a hint of plum and fig preserve. But, even if your description isn’t as precise (and mine seldom is), the joy of this wine is that it’s appealing on many level.
Gran Sarao Cave Rosé not only goes well with food but is also sipable all by itself, and wins our praise for its nice, light 11.5 % alcohol.
The winery has set goals to ensure great quality of the cava they import that include: ageing, family owned company, and disgorged to order.
We’re always impressed by a good bottle of sparkling wine at an attractive price that seems to fit almost any occasion and any glass. Make it a cava rosé and we’re sold.
