    Cava from Spain and Prosecco from Italy. Two sparkling styles that have taken the world by storm, simply for the fact that you can grab a decent bottle of the stuff at half the price of an entry level wine that has the word Champagne slapped on the label! Francesc Ricart Cava Brut

    Cava is made in the same way as Champagne, called Methode Traditionelle which means it’s fermented a second time in the bottle to achieve bubbles. It’s a lot closer in terms of taste to Champagne than Prosecco. Like most of the wine coming out of this Spain these days it also offers great value for money.

    Francesc Ricart Cava Brut definitely falls into that category. Especially when you consider it made an appearance in UK’s “Luxury Lifestyle” magazine a while back in their “Wines to Try” lineup. The wine was made from a careful selection of the best Xarel-lo, Macabeo and Perellada grape varieties and spent 14 months ageing in the bottle.

    And if that all sounds like gobbledygook to you don’t stress! Just know this is a stylish sparkling wine with a creamy texture refreshing citrus fruit flavours.
