Spanish fizz made with the Champagne method and from three Spanish varieties (macabeo, xarello and parellada) in an estate that has been around since the 15th century. Torreblanca 2018 is affordable and delivers.

Less uptight than its French cousin, with juxtaposed layers of candied lemon, crunchy orchard fruit and waxy florals. 19 months on the lees elevate the complexity with subtle nuttiness and a whiff of light pastry, almost reminiscent of galettes. The acids are in check and beautifully carry the fresh summer fruit flavours through the palate which is dry, with fine bubbles and a touch of ‘sweet earthiness’ that I associate – excuse the very personal interpretation- to Jerusalem Artichoke. Shaley minerals, and a nettle-like freshness dominate the finish.
