This beautiful creamy, toasty sparkler comes from Giro Ribot, a preeminent producer in Spain where the family owned and operated winery is located in the Appellation d’Origine Penédes. It is bordered by the Mediterranean Sea to the South and by Montserrat to the north. The French influence is reflected in its classical style. Lady of Spain is a tribute to fashionable women who popularized cava at the turn of the 20th century. The wine is 45 percent Macabeo, 40 percent Xarel-lo and 15 percent Parellada and is 12 percent abv. Visit www.pasternakwine.com.
