2013 Castell d'Age Cava Brut Nature Gran Reserva «Aurèlia»
Region: Spain, Penedès
Grape Variety: Macabeo, Xarel.lo, Parellada, Chardonnay
Sparkling, dry white | Risotto, roasted chicken
The Aurèlia is named after the grandmother of the Junyent family, and is a blend of Macabeo, Xarel.lo, Parellada and Chardonnay, where that bit of distinctive Chardonnay knits the wine into a denser, fuller whole. Lots of toasty and green apples on the nose with a bit of lime curd, a denser body and a great, savoury finish.
