Sumarroca Brut Reserva Cava wine review by (PB)

This non-vintage sparkler was on sale for $10. From the Penedes region of Spain. This wine is painstakingly made with meticulous care harvesting in the night to avoid the sunshine; choosing only the first 20-30% of the juice obtained (the best) and then goes through two fermentations and ages for 21/2 - 3 years in a cave.

I mention all this to say to the vintners; “Save yourselves a lot of trouble!” This wine is light straw on the pour with a very nice bouquet but that is where this wine stops. It is dry, dry , dry and very dull. There is no flavor and no finish. Other than being sparkling and cold with a slight–very slight, citrus note, this wine is dead. Fageddaboudit.
