A little maderized and heavy at first, with soda and vanilla on the nose. The palate is reserved, not aggressive, with dried papaya, grapefruit and soda-like flavors. Finishes almost tropical in flavors, with balancing bitter pith. Good but shy Cava made from 25% Chardonnay and the usual grapes.

(30% xarel-lo, 25% each of parellada and chardonnay and 20% macabeu): Pale gold. Spicy pear and peach skin aromas are complicated by white pepper and beeswax. Fleshy, smooth and refreshingly bitter, offering lively orchard fruit flavors and good back-end lift. This vivacious wine closes on a nervy, spicy note, with good length. -- Josh Raynolds

Cranberry and red apple skin scents fill this round and supple wine, before it shrinks back into the finish. It’s clean, short and peppery in the end. Some jamon Iberico might bring out the fruit.
The Non-Vintage Brut Reserva uses 25% Chardonnay in the blend along with the traditional varieties and spent 15 months on lees. It displays an expressive nose of mineral, brioche, and flowers leading to a wine with good volume, savory flavors, and moderate length. Drink both of these Cavas over the next 12-18 months.

Wine maker notes
This vintage-dated sparkling wine is produced from 100% estate-grown fruit cultivated from 3 parcels using the traditional Champenoise method. A balanced bubbly with elegant buttery, toasty, and yeasty aromas that remind of a bakery. Fresh acidity and great body on the palate, with fine, persistent bubbles carrying through the long, lingering finish. Best when young, enjoy as an aperitif or with any number of seafood dishes. Albet i Noya Brut Natural Reserva is certified organic.
