90 Vinous Media Pale orange. A lively, sharply focused nose delivers fresh red berry, blood orange and floral qualities and a subtle mineral overtone. Juicy raspberry, cherry and candied rose flavors show a refreshingly bitter edge and deepen slowly on the back half. Finishes tangy and precise, with a repeating floral note lingering. This is lot #927705. 2021- 2024

89 International Wine Report If you like the fresh strawberry flavors of the Grenache grape, you’ll love this sparkler. It shows beautiful (biutiful) Grenache aromas and flavors and a creamy, soft mousse. The wine has enough ripe fruit to make it a good pairing for the Thanksgiving meal.

89 View from the Cellar The Biutiful Cava non-vintage Brut Rosé is made entirely from Garnacha, with these high altitude vineyards ranging from forty to fifty years of age. The wine ages for eighteen months on its fine lees prior to disgorgement and was finished with a dosage of eight grams per liter. It is a delicate, pale salmon color and delivers a lovely nose, with quite delicate fruit tones of wild strawberries and nectarine, coupled to lovely minerality, dried flowers and a hint of citrus zest. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied and has a lovely core, with pinpoint bubbles, good focus and grip, zesty acids and fine length and grip on the finish. This is not quite as delicate on the palate as the nose, as the Garnacha provides good, broad shoulders and plenty of personality. This is an excellent food Cava and the good mineral and acid foundation here absolutely devours the dosage. Fine juice. 2020-2030+.
Issue #86 - March/April 2020
87 The Wine Enthusiast Melon and nectarine aromas are simple but fresh and forward. A lean palate follows the nose, while this tastes of nectarine and citrus rind. Despite mild bitterness on the finish, this maintains a sense of freshness. Made entirely from Garnacha, which is rare for Cava.

This spicy, fruity pink bubbly is made with garnacha, the Spanish name for the grenache grape. It’s racy and tasty and fun, ideal for turning any evening into a party, as well as for washing down pre-dinner nibbles. ABV: 12 percent. Great Value

#8 VinePair Rated as #8 of in an article entitled: Eight of the Best Cavas Under $15, Tasted and Ranked, where editor Tim McKirdy tasted more than 40 different Cavas.
A strikingly pink, 100-percent Garnacha rosé, this is a fresh, young sparkling wine, closer in style to a fruity Prosecco than a yeasty Champagne. Its rich depth of vibrant aromas and flavors includes blood orange, tangerine, strawberries, and raspberries.
