Sigura Viudas NV "Aria" Estate Brut Cava ($9.99)
Clear pale gold with a slight green flash of brass. A quick froth falls back quickly to a persistent bubble stream. Simple and fresh aromas, apples and lime. Crisp and frothy mouthfeel, white fruit and gentle acidity masking barely perceptible fresh-fruit sweetness; snappy lime in a long, clean finish. Alcohol 11.5%. US Importer: Freixenet USA, Sonoma, Calif. (Sep 4, 2007)

FOOD MATCH: The wine demonstrated its quenching nature with spicy fare alongside a Sichuan-style Ma Po tofu.



Wine notes in 'shelf-hanger' format:
We publish Wine Lovers' Page tasting reports in the familiar "shelf-hanger" size and format, to make it easy for wine merchants or collectors to print them out, clip and post them where this wine is displayed. We do ask, however, that the name, logo and URL be left intact, and that these reports be used with the specific wines rated, not different bottlings or vintages.

Our tasting policy:
All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I accept no free samples from wineries or distributors, purchasing all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
