Have you ever used good sparkling wine to make a mimosa? It transforms the drink and is worth the investment. This Cava Reserva from Spain is the answer to your sparkling woes. Aged 26 months in bottle, this is almost considered a Gran Reserva, which requires 30 months of aging. It’s from a single vintage, which is rare for wines of this price range. Relying on one single vintage is riskier than blending multiple vintages - as is done in any “NV” (non-vintage) sparkling wine. Net net, this wine is gorgeous, textured, and impressively complex - especially for the price.
Top with juice of your choice for a stunning mimosa, drink on Tuesday just because, or try with anything that could use a palate refresher, like creamy cheeses, pâté, or even something with a lot of flavor like Spanish rice or Paella.
