Dominio de la Vega Reserva Especial Brut 2013 (Valencia, Spain) "...peach, brioche, citrus..."
GOLD MEDAL - DECANTER
"Dominio de la Vega Cava Reserva Especial Brut is a delightful sparkling wine from the Requena region of Spain. It is made from 70% Macabeo and 30% Chardonnay from the winery's Tornel and La Vega vineyards. This beautiful vintage bubbly offers a fine alternative to Champagne at well under half the price! Dominio de la Vega Cava Reserva Especial Brut is soft yellow in color with green tones and fine bubbles. It shows pleasing aromas of white fruits, orange, grapefruit and sweet pastry. Crisp, dry and bubbly with flavors of apple and citrus. Aged for a minimum of 24 months on its lees, it is fruit-forward and nicely balanced, with a long, enticing finish."- 95 Points, Decanter
"I tasted two vintages of their Brut Reserva, including the 2013 Brut Reserva Especial, a blend of Macabeo and Chardonnay with seven grams of residual sugar and aged sur lie for 24 months. It's fresh and straightforward, pleasant, with white fruit and yeast flavors and abundant bubbles, easy to drink and refreshing. 56,778 bottles produced."- 90 Points, Wine Advocate
