Why you’ll love it?
In many ways, Spanish cava has a unique character. While produced using the methode champenoise, it is usually made from indigenous varietals, instead of the usual Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier blend of Champagne. Thus, while it has some characteristics in common with Champagne, it also has its own unique character. Canals & Munne is a special cava house located in Sant Sadurní d’Anoia, it retains a distinct Catalunya character, but its wines are Champagne-like in their richness, mouthfeel and flavours.
The rich, mouth-filling Insuperable Brut Reserva made from a blend of 40% Macabeo, 30% Xarel-lo, and 30% Parellada, it has been on the lees for 25 months. It shows light honey biscuit aromas on the nose and offers a fine mousse and clean palate of brioche, citrus, and almond flavours. Great value!
