Ribera del Duero, Spain
Blend: 90% Macabeo - 10% Chardonnay
Pairings: Perfect as an aperitif and with any seafood-inspired recipe
Unusual in that this cava hails from the Ribera del Duero region, where red wines are 99.9% of the show. For a no-dosage nature, it's properly crisp and dry, almost like a liquid version of a soda cracker. There are some holes in the fabric but overall it's citrusy, tight and only mildly bitter on the finish.
