At Roca Reserva Brut 2018 750mL

Reserva Brut

Cava 2019

Equal parts rich, waxy, smooth and elegant, with excellent spuma, citrus and subtle astringency. Complex citrus, with kaffir lime, lemon zest on the nose, with yuzu and grapefruit zest giving the palate subtle astringency. There’s green fruit – cantaloupe, feijoa and white peach flesh. There are grassy, vegetal and herbaceous elements - asparagus, celery stalk, lemon thyme, sorrel leaf, green tea leaves and kimchi. There’s the pretty florality of courgette flower and white petals in the background. This wine opens up beautifully, and fills the mouth with a soft, gentle spuma. The flavours are intrepid and persistent, and the textural development is smooth and sophisticated. Beeswax, brioche, and lemon curd complete a wine that is bright, refined, expressive and persistent.
