Pink Fizz Heaven
I have always loved the brut version of Vilarnau and when the Rose came out I thought I'd gone to heaven!! Delicious, easy to drink and the bottles look so lovely, I've often bought them as presents. Once you've had good Cava you'll never go back to Prosecco!
A good find!
A very decent Rose Cava! I was pleasantly surprised by this when my wife brought one home. A gentle nose - hints at being aged for longer than you'd expect, - this is backed up by the colour, which is gently mellowing towards orange from pink. In the mouth it has soft acidity, and hints of strawberry, raspberry and a little toffee apple. Not too much sugar, but less acidic than most of my memories of Cava, this beats any pink 'prosecco' into a cocked hat. (bearing in mind I don't know how 'old' this particular bottle is - it might have been nicely maturing on the shelf for all I know and younger bottles might not live up to this one.) Not over-keen on the packaging, - it's a better product than the glitzy suggests. If you like Laurent Perrier Rose champagne you could kid yourself and save a bundle on this!! oh, and I've been in the wine trade for 38 years.....well done Tesco.
