For those of you who need Champagne in the house always but also want to save enough money to pay for your HBO Max subscription, Cava is the next best thing. I do believe it is great in its own right. But what we have here with the Mercat is a bottle of wonderful bubbles, made the same way as Champagne, but with different grapes and from Spain.
So what does this mean? It means that the proof is in the bubbling. What's known as the Traditional Method (or Champagne Method) is the process of causing a second fermentation to occur in the already bottled wine by adding a dosage of sugar and yeast. The bubbles created are unique to that bottle, which is then aged for 18 months causing for the development and deepening of the wines flavors. One might pickup notes of pear, mango and some toasted nuts on the finish.
