Jaume Serra Cristalino Cava Brut 750ML      
Sku: 10779

Jaume Serra, the winery behind Cristalino, was founded in 1943 by enologist Jaume Serra Guell. It is located in the Garraf subdivision of Penedes, in Catalonia. Chardonnay, Macabeo, Parellada and Xarello are grown on Jaume Serra’s El Padruel estate vineyards in the Alt Penedes, near the town of Vilanova y la Geltru, 31 miles south of Barcelona. In addition to their estate grown grapes, the winery has established long-term contracts with 15 other growers in Penedes. By law, Cava must be made in the traditional method and must age for a minimum of nine months on its lees before release. The winery takes the extra step of importing their yeast from Champagne, France to impart the finest quality to their Cavas.

Tasting notes
Crisp and toasty nose, this wine shows beautiful citrus and green apple fruit with a supple, yet lively mouth feel of very fine bubbles and a very clean finish.

There’s a savory edge to the apple pastry, ginger and almond cream flavors in this well-cut and focused cava. The mouthwatering finish is tinged with smoke and nut notes. Drink now through 2015. 300,000 cases made. ľAN
