“In literature as in love, we are astonished at what is chosen by others.” — Andre Mauroi
There was a split decision on the bottle art. The writing Wine Harlot thought it was garish and loud. The drinking Wine Harlot totally grooved on it, and thought it was a striking post-pop-art label. Taste is a matter of opinion. But we were united on our opinion of the contents of the bottle. Two stems-up from the Wine Harlots! It’s a delicious sparkler, a light straw color with a pineapple and crisp acidity. The perfect pairing for this would be a Seafood Paella.
The details: 12% alcohol. The cava is made in the méthode traditional with a blend of macebeo, xarel-lo and parellada grapes from the Pendés region in Spain. The suggested retail is $14 USD. The importer is Pasternak Wine Imports. This was a media sample generously provided by Pasternak.
The music match is “Lady in Spain” by Ingrid Michaelson from the album Be Ok. Taste is a matter of opinion, the Wine Harlots opinion is Lady of Spain is an lovely, enjoyable cava. Olé!
