RKS Wine: Rock Bottom Priced Spanish Cava

A Spanish Organic Cava for $12.95? Yes here in Ontario you can have a Murviedro Brut Nature for $12.95. After a cooker of a day like today anything cold and bubbly will hit the spot. It is one of those days you wake up to shove the ageing dog out for a pee and you slurp down a root beer at 5 a.m. because the humidity is unbearable.

This Murviedro is made by the Traditional Method just like Champagne. It is a blend of 85% Macabeo and 15% Chardonnay. On the nose lime, lemon, fine lees, guava, pineapple and a bit of ginger. It is definitely Brut and hits with a bite making it a thirst quencher. There is whole wheat toast, asparagus and tangerine with well integrated bubbles and just the right relaxed citrusy touch. A fantastic thirst quencher and better than root beer!

To cool the culinary heat try with a Sichuan-Style Asparagus and Tofu Salad served over Korean Soba noodles . https://www.seriouseats.com/sichuan-style-asparagus-tofu-salad-recipe
