The Oddbins Take

Bruce began Friday drinks by plonking a bottle of cava on the table. He announced. ' No lager tonight dudes, time to try something different.'


Most of the time, sparkling wine is perceived as purely a celebratory drink. But some devotees of this refreshing wine-style drink it whenever the mood occurs i.e. having a pint or a glass of wine with a mate. Cava is outstanding quality, traditionally made (Like Champagne) and you don't need to sell your goldfish to buy some.


Combine this concept along with the amazing pioneer producer Codorniu, will take you straight to their Ecologica Cava Brut NV. Lemon zest, green apples and fresh almond aromas. Followed by a delicious creamy mousse. Some slightly conservative friends may think it's fancy, but others may greet you with a grin. ;)

Codorniu is a historic wine producer famous for making the Spanish sparkling wine, Cava. The company's story begins in Penedes in 1872 when Jaume Codorniu made still wines. Centuries later in 1872 Codorniu's descendant Josep Raventos utilised his newfound knowledge of sparkling wine production (Learnt from studies in Champagne) and used the local grapes Macabeo, Parellada & Xarel Lo.

From this kernel, Codorniu has grown into an internationally renowned company. Sourcing grapes from it's own vineyards and buying from local farmers with long-term contracts. This particular wine is made by the company's chief winemaker Bruno Colomer Marti.
