Wine of the Week [June 24-June 30] Rosat Especial

Greetings fellow wine enthusiasts!  Regardless of the degree to which you identify with the term, whether you like to enjoy a glass every now and then, or, like me, pour through old newspaper articles to see if any towns buried good wine in their time capsules and when they’ll be opening them, we here at The Goat would like to foster your love for the drink by offering two wines per week that we will showcase here in the blog, and have available for tasting on Fridays from 6~7 p.m.

Each week in June will feature a rosé to help make enjoying the Spring/Summer weather a little easier.  This week will be the last week of the pink wine festivities, but we will close it out with a bang…or more appropriately a fizz.  I saved the best (in my extremely biased opinion) for last.  This sparkling rosé embodies what most of us look for in a glass of bubbly.  Not too sweet or dry, not enamel dissolvingly acidic, nor is essence of fermented cow droppings the first descriptor you reach for when you nose the glass.  German Gilabert’s Cava Brut Nature Rosat is balanced, fresh, and above all, delicious!  D.O. Cava is a Spanish wine appellation for a style of wine, not a particular wine from a delimited geographical region (Rioja, Priorat, etc.).  Although this is the case, the vast majority of Cava is produced in the area of Penedes in Catalonia.  Trepat and Garnacha (Grenache) are the grape varietals used with the bulk of the blend being comprised of Trepat.

Sparkling, crisp, refreshing; everybody has a reason to love Cava!  German Gilabert’s Cava Rosat adds some red juice to the mix, imparting waves of pomegranate, cherry, and rhubarb to this satisfying summer sipper.  Cheers!

 

 

See you Friday!!!
