|The Cava “1+1=3” Rosé “Seleccion” is crafted from a fifty-fifty blend of Garnacha and Pinot Noir. The wine was aged sur latte for fifteen months and finished with a dosage of 8.5 grams per liter. It is a lovely pale salmon color and offers up a pretty and refined bouquet tart strawberries, melon, a lovely base of minerality, lemongrass and a touch of lavender in the upper register. On the palate the wine is crisp, young and full-bodied, with an excellent core and mineral undertow, refined mousse and fine balance on the long, focused and complex finish. This is really good and quite dry for its dosage level, as the underlying minerality just eats up the perception of sweetness on the backend. First class Cava. 2023-2040.
