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 30 months in bottle, this Gran Reserva is perfectly aged. It’s from a single vintage, which is rare for everyday sparkling wines. 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.
