Yá Cuvée 23 Brut Reserva 2015
‘Ya’ means ‘Yes!’ in Spain and we say ‘YES!’ to this estate grown sustainably farmed Cava, made from handpicked fruit, 100% free run juice (mosto flor) and high quality methods (i.e. aging 2 ½ years on the lees before disgorging like a true Champagne), making it especially perfect for 'good bubbly' drinkers looking for a tasty bargain. The Sumarroca family owns vineyards in the Penedes, planted to local grapes (Parrellada, Macabeu and Xarel-lo,) plus a little Chardonnay to enhance the delicacy of this Cava. Fresh, dry and clean with lemon citrus, white flower, mineral, anise and a hint of croissant in the nose and on the palate, this is simply delicioso and a truly elegant sparkler. Cava pairs particularly well with sautéed shrimp, fried calamari, fried artichoke hearts in lemon, cold asparagus salad, sheep's milk cheeses such as Manchego and Serrano Ham, and/or with a main course of fresh white fishes like Cod with yellow Spanish rice and vegetables.
