Well guys and girls, I’m going to cheat this week. I’m off to Barcelona end of this week for a long weekend of drinking and relaxing hopefully, and so I’ve managed to convince Ant (not that he needed much convincing) to alter the plan a little bit and go for Cava.
Now over the last couple of years Cava has become much more prevalent on the shelves in supermarkets across the UK. It’s that less expensive bubbly isn’t it? It’s a tad unfair because it’s a standout drink in its own right. The plan this week then is to talk about why it’s different, and to taste a few glasses that’ll make you realize this is a serious drink, and we’re damn lucky in the UK to have such great access to them.
None of the problems from last week luckily enough, and I can have pretty much free reign over the supermarkets and shops. Wherever you shop, they’ll have a Cava!
My picks this week are:
Taste the Difference Vintage Cava, Brut
Signature Vintage Cava, Brut
Codorníu, Brut, NV
Olivella Ferrari Cava, Brut, Reserva
Freixenet Reserva Real
Happy shopping guys!
