What is Cava?

One of Spain’s most well-known wines is Cava, a popular sparkling wine.
The word “cave” in Spanish, which refers to the wine-aging caves, is where the name “cava” originates.
Before the 1970s, Spanish winemakers renamed their sparkling wine cava to appease French Champagne producers. Prior to that time, Spanish sparkling wine was known as champán
In addition to other appellation requirements, wine must originate from the Cava Denominación de Origen (DO) region and be carbonated with a secondary fermentation in bottle.
The main grape used to make Cava is Macabeo (Viura). Despite its significance, Macabeo has a quite bland flavour. It smells faintly fragrant, has a lemony flavour that is reminiscent of green almonds, and a slightly bitter finish.

Because of its inherent sparkle, Cava is particularly well suited to pairing with food, according to François Chartier, author of Taste Buds and Molecules. “The analysis of the chemical structure of Cava’s bubbles clearly shows they are loaded with surfactant molecules, hundreds of which are aromatic particles,” he writes.

According to the primary Cava styles, his study groups these fragrances into categories based on the idea that matching foods and wines with aromatic molecules from the same family results in a powerful synergy that is more than the sum of its parts.
The climate is the key to producing Cavas, especially Gran Reserva Brut Nature varieties, according to Salvi Moliner, winemaker at Oriel Rossell, a tiny family-owned estate winery in Penedès that produces wines that are listed in Michelin-starred restaurants.
