Mas Codina - Cava Reserva, Brut Nature, Spain (NV)
This Cava has a lovely, lemon-driven nose with ripe yellow pear, a hint of vanilla and soft biscotti notes. It is light to mid weight, slightly creamy yet firm and dry on the finish.
Mas Codina is a 40 hectare estate in the Alt Penedès which dates back to 1681. This Cava Brut Nature Reserva was hand-harvested from 20 to 30-year-old vines of Macabeo, Xarel-lo, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and estate bottled. Farming is 100% organic on the estate. Though it does not say it on the label, the wine is 100% single vintage and is aged on its lees for two years before release.
