A Damascene conversion!

Cava, Spanish for painfully dry, headache inducing fizz... or so I thought. This was the second of two holiday cavas that have changed my opinion 360 degrees on Spain's most well known fizz. Knowing the Raimat still whites, I went with a producer that I know and love...

Raimat, Cava, Brut Nature, Chardonnay Xarello, NV
Pale yellow with a green hue. Lots of bubbles with a delicate and crisp palette. Very refreshing and lovely balance of acidity and fruit. Citrus (like the delicious lemons at Pollença market) and floral with very subtle undertone of tropical fruit. A very good and well balanced wine and not bad for €9. 2.5* 7/ 10
