L'Atzar isn't made by one of the big cava houses, it's a small venture with relatively tiny quantities of wine, but plenty of personality. If you haven't tried cava for a while, please give this a go. It's lemony fresh with a hint of aromatic herbs and it's a great way to welcome guests. Make it the star of an evening in, and serve with tapas – nothing fancy, just a few almonds and olives would work sublimely well.
This cava is a blend of Macabeo, Xarel-lo and Parellada grapes, made right outside of Barcelona in the region of Penedes.
