Loads of white fruits and lees, resulting in a nose of pure toast and vanilla. Shows the perfect size and integration, with a creamy feel. Flavors of grapefruit, lime and mineral are at the fore. Classy and refined, with a proper petrol characteristic.
Jané Ventura is known for its sparkling cavas, but this table wine from Xarello, Muscat and the obscure Subirat Parent grape is appealing because it doesn’t bite off more than it can chew. There’s no oak so what you get is lean, tranparent lemon and lime flavors and a ready mouthfeel. Interesting but not for everyone.
This wine is made entirely from Macabeo, one of the three grapes that comprise cava. The wine is heavy and fairly dull in the nose; there isn’t much fruit and only a distant scent of nut oil. The flavors are sharp and lemony, and the finish is equally tangy. Cheerful is not this wine’s middle name.
