Tasting Notes: With no dosage, the Brut Nature is a bone-dry, mineral driven expression of Cava with balancing weight to round out the beautifully persisten acidity.
"Pale green-tinged yellow. A suave, highly perfumed bouquet evokes fresh citrus and orchard fruits and pungent flowers, and a suave floral note builds in the glass. Silky and penetrating on the palate, offering intense Meyer lemon and green apple flavors that deepen on the back half. The floral quality repeats on a long, nervy finish that shows very good clarity and final bite." - Josh Raynolds, Vinous
