Perelada Stars Brut Nature Cava 2014

An exclusive import to Australia by Cellarmasters. Cava continues to offer great value for money, considering the amount of labour involved in making. A blend of indigenous xarel-lo, parellada and macabeo with a little chardonnay and pinot noir.

Perelada, Stars, Brut Nature, Cava, Penedes, 2014

Straw gold in colour. Big bubbles float slowly upwards. Nutty, yeasty pound cake aromas with soft yellow pomme fruits over chamomile flowers and rich citrus. Medium bodied mousse with medium intensity. Crunchy apple and pear pomme fruits dominate, finishing dry and clean with a firm grip. Acidity is refreshing, almost bracing. An aperitif style (less than 3 grams of residual sugars) while the usage of the ‘French’ grapes gives a little richness and depth. Good value.
