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 blend of Macabeo, Xarel.lo, Parellada and Chardonnay, where that bit of distinctive Chardonnay elevates the Cava and gives it more structure and body. Lots of toasty and green apples on the nose with a bit of lime curd, a denser body and a great, savoury finish.
