Rondel Extreme Pura Raza Brut Cava NV

Rondel Extreme Pura Raza Brut Cava NV

A fruity, medium-dry sparkling wine made with Parellada, Macabeo and Xarel-lo that is a lively, bottled-aged Cava with plenty of character.
Made by Codorníu, the oldest family business in Spain and the 17th oldest in the world having begun their winemaking legacy in 1551, this deliciously affordable party-popper is a pleasantly elegant sparkling wine. With a delightful floral-based bouquet and a smooth fruity flavour, this beautifully refined offering from Spain's flagship sparkling wine region suggests that Cava is still a region to be reckoned with despite the Prosecco boom.
 
Predominantly Parellada together with Macabeo and Xarel.lo. Bottle aged for a minimum of nine months before release. Blended to show plenty of fruit on the palate making it an excellent banqueting sparkler; new packaging this year.

Cava region of Spain

The doyenne of Spanish sparkling wine, Cava has enjoyed much success of late, especially as an affordable and quality alternative to Champagne.

Cava is made using the traditional method of sparkling wine production (second fermentation in the bottle as opposed to in a large vat) and its main grapes are native varieties of Parellada, Xarel-lo and Macabeo. Having said that, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay (two of the grapes used in Champagne) are starting to creep into the production of Cava too.

The majority of Cava is made in Catalonia, and within that north eastern part of Spain, most is made in the region of Penedès.

A major contribution of Cava’s to the world of traditional sparkling wine production has been the introduction of gyropalettes; large metal cubes in which bottles of Cava are stacked then twisted and turned until the sediment from the second fermentation ends of in the top of the bottle neck (so it is ready to be removed). Gyropalletes are a common sight in Champagne these days too.

Two companies dominate the cava production scene: Freixenet and Codorníu.

Parellada-Xarel-lo-Maccabeu

These are three white grapes that go into Cava; one of the UK’s favourite sparkling wines. On their own each of them tend to be a little bland but when mixed together and put through a second fermentation in bottle they really produce something fun and fizzy. Some producers add a little Chardonnay to the Cava mix also.

Salads & Vegetables
This wine will work very well with olives, asparagus, cucumber and most notably a salmon Caesar salad.
Fish & Seafood 
Works best with lobster, crab and oysters but is also a great match with prawns and smoked salmon - you could even try it with sushi.
Pasta & Other Sauces
An earthy mushroom sauce or a buttery lemony sauce would complement this wine nicely. 
Meats
Light meats would work well with this wine but you could also pair it with veal or duck. 
Herbs & Spices
Mint is great with this wine - you can even pop a leaf in your glass to add another dimension - but it also works well with basil and coriander. 
Spicy Foods
Strongly spiced foods will be more than this wine can handle so stick to the lighter flavours of Japanese cuisine. 
Cheeses
Hard cheeses such as Parmesan and Gouda  are well suited but goat's cheese will work equally well.
