I'm not sure I could have pinned this down as Cava in a blind tasting - which is a good and bad thing. A lot of Cava available in the UK is not that exciting, but good Cava can be LOVELY, and hard to find. This one has a good lemon and tropical fruit core and a nicely delicate mousse (a way of saying that you feel the smooth texture of bubbles but they're not so aggressive that you feel each individual explosion in your mouth, like popping candy, as you might experience with some carbonated waters and cheaper sparkling wines). What I liked more was the hint of fruit sweetness to balance the wine, some light nuttiness and maybe also a hint of ginger (I got a whiff of ginger ale on the finish), which together make it a lot more interesting than many alternatives, though still quite youthful.

moose Completely agree that Cava can be a real treat - and this one certainly sounds it. Nuttiness and ginger sound intriguing and good. Also agree that most UK Cava is pop!

Grapefan Sound good and a pleasure to get a Cava that tastes of something.

bjwdad That's basically the meaning I'd attached to "mousse;" glad to know I was correct!
