When it’s time to purchase affordable sparkling wine, most consumers instinctively head to the Prosecco shelves at their local wine shop. But for the adventurous consumer, Cava offers tremendous value and there are some terrific offerings. The wines were generally fresh, well balanced and delicious. The judges enjoyed the dry style of these wines and the tangy citrus flavours would certainly appeal to a broad audience. The Parés Baltà and Villa Conchi Brut were particular standouts and both offer real value.
