NV Julia Bernet Cava Brut Nature U - Catalonia, Spain
From the small town of Subirates in Catalunya, Xavi Bernet runs an organic winery named after his daughter Julia, where he produces wines indicative of terroir and varietal. For the U cuvee he focuses primarily on Xarel-lo, known for structure and strength, and favored for providing longevity to Cava. No dosage followed by two years on the lees results in a crisp, bone dry bubbly with refreshing citrus flavors, herbal and mineral notes. This unique, elegant Cava pairs well with a decadent seafood tower or a chocolate guava mousse.
