Just received two gorgeous bottles of Pata Negra Cava, a Spanish brand that in its exciting packaging seems to be announcing “Ola, it’s party time.”
The label design took inspiration from the gate of Antoni Gaudi’s Casa Mila in Barcelona, interpreted to adorn the bottle with an instantly recognizable shimmer rooted in Spanish tradition and artistry.
The two wines I tried are below:
BRUT RESERVA: SRP $14.99.
Varietals: 20% Chardonnay, 30% Macabeo, 25% Parellada, 25% Xarel-lo
Bright pale yellow with a continuous release of small fine bubbles, the wine offers clean and intense aromas of apples and citrus, with very subtle hints of brioche integrated during its aging.
BRUT ROSÉ: SRP $14.99.
Varietals: 80% Trepat, 20% Pinot Noir
Pretty strawberry color with primary aromas of red berries and pomegranate, very fresh and delicious.
When I was on the train/tube in London (where drinking on the train is allowed as many people commute an hour from work) I saw four ladies on their way home from work, sharing a sparkler. If it was this attractively packaged bottle, what a great statement it would make! (aside from enjoying the refreshing aroma and taste).
