More about this wine from Spain
Welcome to Tasting Notes... the "fun facts" edition! 1. Spain is the second largest sparkling wine producing country in the world! 2. The Codorníu family basically invented Spanish bubbly aka Cava. 3. The fam settled its original vineyard in Catalonia in 1551. Columbus had barely even discovered the Americas. 4. "Anna," the bottle's namesake, is the last heiress holding the family name! 5. Codorníu is the oldest family business in Spain and the 17th oldest in the world.

The nose shows off notes of nectarine and grapefruit and it kinda feels like playing hide and seek in a citrus grove on a deserted tropical island. The palate is quite elegant with creamy and frothy freshness created by the fine, persistent bubbles of the juice! We've gotta tip the hat to the Codorníu winemakers for the vivacity and fruitiness in this bottle due to the extra love and aging for 15 months!

Eating...

A spread of salty Iberico ham and fresh bread for days! Or maybe a sloppy slice from your favorite delivery pizza spot.
