Tasting Notes: Naveran Dama is a masterpiece. The Chardonnay gives the wine body and volume. The Parellada imparts a zesty, bright character that cuts through the buttery roundness of the Chardonnay. Champagne lovers will enjoy this Mediterranean farmer fizz with oysters, raw tuna and sushi. Its fresh acidity complements fruit desserts, especially peaches and sliced oranges.
