What We're Drinking

 

One of the most serious English Sparkling producers. This historic estate has been in the Goring family since 1743. The tiny 16-acre vineyard is close-planted on a steep south-facing chalk escarpment described as 'similar to the Côte des Blancs' in Champagne. The fruit is picked very selectively with quality being the absolute focus. The grapes are pressed gently using a traditional Coquard press. After three years on the lees this wine, composed of 45% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay & 22% Pinot Meunier, is hand disgorged and balanced with a minimal dosage of just 4g/L. It has a fine counterbalance between toasty richness and power from the wines élevage in Burgundian French Oak barrels, with racy acidity, tension and a focused chalky minerality.

Spanish & Portuguese Wine News: Funky Mas Codina

By: Joe Manekin | K&L Spanish & Portuguese Wine Buyer

Three words:  Funky MAS CODINA.

When I'm not drinking 2002 Pierre Paillard (man is this stuff good!) our new DI cava, Mas Codina, is a mighty fine, affordable bubbly to have on hand, one of the best I've come across. All estate grown fruit on vineyards that have been cultivated on the same land in the Penedes by the Garrida family since the

Mas Codina Cava Brut Reserva Penedès ($12.99)17th century. Everything is still riddled and disgorged by hand, the dosage is not too high, it is not a sulphur bomb, just beautifully balanced...in short, very well made stuff for a fair price. We may have other cava choices for those who like it dry (Loxarel, Raventos rosé, Agusti Torello Mata), but Mas Codina sure is a good one to have on hand for the season....
