Dominio de la Vega Cava Reserva Especial Brut is a delightful sparkling wine from the Requena region of Spain. It is made from 70% Macabeo and 30% Chardonnay from the winery's Tornel and La Vega vineyards. This beautiful vintage bubbly offers a fine alternative to Champagne at well under half the price!
Dominio de la Vega Cava Reserva Especial Brut is soft yellow in color with green tones and fine bubbles. It shows pleasing aromas of white fruits, orange, grapefruit and sweet pastry. Crisp, dry and bubbly with flavors of apple and citrus. Aged for a minimum of 24 months on its lees, it is fruit-forward and nicely balanced, with a long, enticing finish.
Enjoy Dominio de la Vega Cava Reserva Especial Brut as an apéritif and with filet of sole, grilled shrimp, paella, chicken salad, and fruit desserts.
