Torre Oria Cava Brut NV
Every now and then a wine we have never heard of, let alone tasted, simply blows us away. Such is the case with the Torre Oria Cava Brut, a Gold Medal recipient at the prestigious Concours Mondial international wine competition in Brussels. Made entirely from Macabeo grapes that are fermented in the bottle, Torre Oria Cava captivates from the moment the cork pops and this delightfully frothy bubbly graces the glass. The wine’s pretty sunshine-imbued color and full floral bouquet of berries and wildflowers set the tone for a delightful interlude. With delicate, tiny bubbles that glide gracefully across the palate Torre Oria carries its magic. It offers a wealth of complex, elegant flavors: savory peach, tropical fruit and spring flower tones slip easily down the thirsty gullet. Supple and medium-bodied throughout, Torre Oria exits with a long, lingering finish that makes the imbiber beg for more. Refreshingly dry, one has to wonder just how long one bottle of this delicious Cava can last, so you may want to have another on ice. Enjoy!
