Pale yellow. Deeply pitched orange rind and pear skin aromas are complemented by quinine, fennel and chamomile. Fleshy and dry in the mouth, with good lift and bite to the bitter citrus and orchard fruit flavors. A long, incisive finish shows mounting musky herb and mineral notes and strong echoes of pear and quinine. This hefty Cava pairs very nicely with buttery seafood dishes or pungent cheeses.

Apple and stone-fruit aromas offer a hint of toast, minerality and sulfur. Dry, firm and on the cusp of elegant, this lean, racy Cava favors lemon-lime and white peach flavors prior to a chalky finish.

The 1312 Reserva Brut is a young, fresh, clean and straightforward Cava with good balance between fruit and bottle age. The palate is sharp and the dosage is not noticed. Refreshing. It's always hard to give a drinking window in these non-vintage wines, but at least here all bottles carry the disgorgement date on the back label, and it should be good a couple of years from that date.
