Last Friday I finally managed to get some of my cava friends together to try six cavas from Dominion De La Vega, situated in Valencia. Very exciting since I had never tried them, nor anything else out of Valencia. http://www.dominiodelavega.com/
A Friday is generally a very good day to have a tasting since everyone is very relaxed and positive since the weekend is waiting. And since the weather is really bad here in Sweden with all the snow melting and the sky beeing all greay, we really needed something to cheer us up.
And since we still had some snow I put the cavas out to cool. The result was very cool cava indeed, so we used our hands to get the optimal temperature. :-)
It was a great tasting and so nice to try something new.
Everyone had the same favourite too, the Artemayor, that is aged 6 months on oak, giving it a nice roundness and flavour of slight toffee, vanilla but still keeping it's freshness with apple and rasberry notes. And like all the other cavas the Artemayor had a very nice bubble structure too.
A big thank you to Dominion De La Vega for making us able to try these cavas!
