This wine perfectly represents the plot-by plot fermentation philosophy. Dominio de la Vega makes terroir based wines, authentic products with the vineyard soul!
Tasting notes: Light yellow colour with fine and integrated bubbles. Great complex bouquet with pastry reminiscence and fresh hints of white fruit, toasty and vanilla aftertaste. A rounded, velvety feeling in the palate, good volume and balanced fizz. A long, creamy and elegant finish.
Food pairing: Ideal cava with any food or even alone. It pairs perfectly with fish and seafood, any type of rice dishes, appetisers, and slightly spiced white and red meats. Try also with chocolate confectionery.
