TASTING NOTES

Mar de Frades NV Espumoso Brut Nature

Mar de Frades, Rías Baixas

Fresh, clean nose with yeasty, white fruit (apple) and citrus aromas. This is a fresh, light-bodied sparkling Albariño with lime notes. Good as an aperitif. 15.5 points

Mar de Frades NV Espumoso Brut Nature

Mar de Frades, Rías Baixas

This was the first sparkling wine made from Albariño. Following the producer’s style it comes in a bright blue bottle. As it is the case with Cava, the second fermentation is done in the bottle but with barely nine months of aging the price seems a bit high compared to more complex, longer aged Cava. It has nonetheless found a niche in Galicia’s market. Aniseed, herb aromas followed by a light syrupy touch. Young, light and easy-to-drink, it is a little sweet and bitter on the finish. 15.0 points
