"Gonzalez Byass's Catalan Cava bodega. All local varieties aged for 18 months. Clean, deep-flavoured. Not absolutely bone dry but clean and well made. A cut above average for Cava."
A blend of the three traditional Cava grapes (Macabeo, Parellada and Xarel-lo) and aged for about 18 months on the lees, Villarnau Cava has a very attractive nose - subtle notes of brioche, fresh bread, apples and citrus aromas with notes of spice and a gentle earthy minerality. Creamy mousse, ample vibrant flavors across the palate and a nice minerally finish.
