WINES SOURCED LOCALLY AND RATED BY MARTIN HUDSON MW
Tried this week..... (it's a dirty job but someone has to do it)
Have you heard about the new Cava PDO (Protected Designation of Origin)? Introduced late last year “Cava de Paraje Calificado” must come from authorised small vineyard parcels of vines over ten years old that are harvested by hand to limited yields. The wines must come from a single vintage, be aged for at least 36 months (like vintage Champagne), and be “Brut” in style. These characterful, very savoury and food friendly wines are in marked contrast to the mass produced styles more usually found in the UK.
