Paul Cheneau Lady of Spain

“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!
