Freixenet Brut Blanc de Blanc
This bubbly Cava is produced by the same winery that gives us Gloria Ferrer, one of my favorite sparkling wines: https://www.gloriaferrer.com/carneros-winery
The perfect casual summer sipper…from Catalonia, Spain. 100% Chardonnay grapes. A sparkling value…$10 range. Lots of fun bubbles. Notes of baked apple with just a touch of lemon. Available on-line. I also found this Cava locally at Tinnell’s in Roanoke, Virginia. http://tinnells.com
