Wine Region: Cava, Spain
Grapes: Macabeo, Xarello, Parellada
A delicate bead in the glass of soft golden color. The nose bursts with rich pear, green apple and hints of cream. On the palate the wine shows great finesse and balance with notes of papaya and pear rounded out with hints of hazelnuts, finishing with crisp acidity and freshness.
Robert Parker 91 pts - A wonderful peachy bouquet that blossoms in the glass with hints of dried apricot and honeysuckle. The palate is very well-balanced with crisp acidity and a fine thread of bitter lemon that lends tension and poise, leading to a very champagnois finish. Excellent!
About the Winery
Inspired by Barcelona's Mercat de Sant Josep de la Boqueria- the quintessentially Catalan market destination where locals and tourists alike gather to eat, shop and gossip. Mercat Cava aims to evoke the same spirit of community, liveliness, and tradition. The Cavas are made in the traditional method in the cellars of Moli Parellada in Sant Sadurn Anoia, led by winemaker Francisco Dominguez. Made from old vines of indigenous varietals, Mercat sees extended lees aging, low dosage, and is disgorged to order - all tenets of quality rarely seen in value sparkling wine.
