Sainsbury’s Cava Brut

Posted by

Sainsbury’s Cava Brut is a great find for those who are looking for a middle ground, taste-wise, between Prosecco and Champagne. Fermented in the bottle using the traditional method, this Cava features a blend of Macabeo, Xarel-lo and Parellada grapes.

While the reviews on Sainsbury’s website are a mixed bag, I suspect that some of the less favourable comments may be down to serving temperature. A word of advice: don’t serve this Cava straight from the fridge because it doesn’t taste of much. Letting it warm up for about 20 minutes really brings out its citrus aromas and green apple flavours with a slightly toasty finish.

I’ve been purchasing this Cava for quite some time now, and I must say, Cavas in general are underappreciated and offer excellent value for money when you want something sparkling but it’s not a special occasion. At just £6 a bottle and an even more attractive £4.50 when there’s a 25% discount.
