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.
Incredibly 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)
