Find prices and retail availability for Gelida Cava Brut.


Initial review, by way of background: Cava is a sparkling wine typically from Spain, filling the role played typically by Italian Prosecco or lighter Champagnes. This is De Marques Gelida Cava Brut Exclusive Reserva, Spain, 2002, finished at 11.5% alcohol.

On the nose: Walnuts and hints of lemon.

On the palate: Poured cool with a brief decant and swirled vigorously, this Spanish cava shows smooth nutty walnut, with creamy walnut filling in the edges of your mouth.  

In summary: Overall, excellent experience with a long-aged, value-priced cava.  Rates three stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale, with a plus for pleasantness and depth.  Very good value.
