Cava Brut Nature NV, Dominio de Tharsys, Valencia, Spain

lemon sherbet, tropical, floral
Made from Macabeo and Parellada grapes this is a fizz with real typicity showing the classic citrus and floral flavours with dried grass notes that are so characteristic of this lovely wine. It has a beautifully fine mousse shot through with freshness and minerality and delightful flavours of lemon sherbet, banana, spring flowers and that unmistakable grassiness that picks you up and plops you squarely in a bar in Barcelona - Gambas a la Plancha sizzling on the grill, kids playing in the square and the sounds of the footie drifting in from a nearby TV.
