What to drink? Week 40

pere ventura, aw wines, cava
Pere Ventura is a modern cava producer that makes good quality. During our trip in Penedés three weeks ago, we had the good fortune to visit them and test their range, which is both broad and exciting.

At the Beer and Whiskey Fair this weekend, I met those who import  and represents Cava Pere Ventura in Sweden, and they told me that a new one of their cavas were now available in the order range. Namely Cuvée Maria del Mar, which is a really nice cava.

Cava Cuvée Maria del Mar, contains the grapes Xarel.lo, Macabeo, Parellada and Chardonnay, where parts of the Xarel.lo has been aged in oak barrels. This, combined with the fact that the cava then has been aged over 30 months gives a mature and fantastic round tone of some toffee, almond and buttery tones, while the ripe fruit is still there.

cuvée maria del mar, pere ventura, aw winesIncredibly fresh and a very good food cava. At the swedish monopoly it has number 77511 in the ordering system, and the price is a mere 135 SEK (20 USD)

In Sweden we now have four of the Pere Ventura range available. Cuvée Maria del Mar is the most expensive, while the other stays at around 110 SEK a bottle. Incredibly affordable and good. Order now and you have them just in time for next weekend!
