Albet i Noya - 2019
Quality no added sulphur sparkling wine from Penedès in Spain, the top Spanish region for sparkling wine. This top-calibre Xarel.lo sparkling wine is made without any sulphites added, allowing the aromas and flavours to fully express themselves. This gives a very ‘pure’, fruity taste to the wine which is very enjoyable. The grapes are harvested by hand, and vinified in an oxygen-free, 100% hygienic process. It is aged for a year to give a gentle fizz and soft mouthfeel. Made in very limited quantities – get some while you can!

90 Points – The Wine Gang, ‘No added sulphur in this superior sparkling wine from Cava country, and quite a high, unusual nose with notes of mint and herbs, and plenty of brightness. Not aggresively fizzy, it is fresh and vivacious, and as clean as the proverbial whistle with its ultra crisp and vital finish.‘ August 2016 (2013 vintage)
‘It is pristine, light, fresh and fruity sparkling wine with a mousse that has just the right balance between softness and energy. I did not just taste the NOSODOS+, I drank it, and I tested it over several days by resealing it and storing it in the fridge, fully expecting this no sulphur fizz to fall apart on day two, but it was still drinking well on day three. It did not last until day four, not because it fell apart, but because there was none left. I had drunk it all!‘ – Tom Stevenson, November 2015 (2013 vintage)
‘Classy fruit, streets ahead of most cava‘ Liz Sagues, Hampstead & Highgate April 2016 (2013 vintage)
