Wine of the week: Mas Sardana Cava Brut Nature
I seem to be spending a great deal of time at the moment trying to persuade my readers to drink cava which, pound for pound, is at least equal to if not better value than prosecco.
It’s drier, of course, which may put some people off, but which I regard in most instances as a positive advantage and it’s much improved in quality over the last few years.
This particular cava which I tasted at the Great Western Wine tasting in Bath yesterday is made by former sommelier Franck Massard and is a real gem. It’s a Brut Nature wich means it doesn’t have any extra sugar added but isn’t at all lean or mean as a result - it’s full-flavoured, richly textured and absolutely delicious. It would be great with all things fried like croquetas or even fish & chips.
The price for a single bottle at GWW is £12.95 which is very fair with 10% off if you buy two 6 bottle cases bringing it down to £11.65. And Naked Wines has it for £9.99 if you’re one of their ‘Angels’. (You'll pay £13.49 for it with them if you're not!)
