Over Deliver, Our Promise
'Under promise and over deliver' is a business truism we find flawed. 'Over deliver, as promised' is much more pointed. And for that we'd like to point to our LaGranja 360 Cava Brut.
We worked closely with the winery to create a Cava that lives up to every great expectation inherent in dry sparkling wine. To be fair to our partners, it was truly fun work, and not too hard. They may not take themselves too seriously (as evidenced by the surreal farmyard creatures that outfit their bottles), but they are quite serious about their winemaking.
From a family-owned winery in the Penedès, a prominent viticultural area in Catalonia, northeastern Spain, LaGranja 360 Cava Brut is made in the traditional method with Macebo, Parellada, and Pansa Blanca grapes. The white wine blend is bottled along with the traditional licor de tirajo (sugar and yeast), and then aged for nine months as the yeast converts sugar into surprisingly fine bubbles. This authentic Cava is a real Brut-dry and very crisp. The nose is aromatic with white fruit, and it sips citrusy with pleasing acidity that carries through the finish. In a "word"-ahh.
LaGranja 360 Cava Brut is an ideal wine for appetizers of Smoked Trout or sweet, fruity desserts like our Mini Pie Medley. And at only $6.99* for each 750 ml bottle, it over delivers, as promised.
* La Granja Cava Spain is currently available in Trader Joe's stores where wine is sold. It is $6.99 plus tax unless otherwise noted here: OH: $9.49. Alcohol availability & price may vary due to state laws, taxes, shipment fees & other such stuff.
