This fine Spanish sparkling wine is made using the Traditional Method, in which the secondary fermentation producing a sparkling wine’s bubbles occurs in the bottle. Its beautiful strawberry and raspberry aromas and vibrant red berry and cherry flavors lead to a clean, crisp finish that invites another sip.
Wine Spectator 87 points - A vinous version, showing an array of ground spices, with well-meshed flavors of sun-dried cherry, macerated plum, toasted almond and subtle balsamico. Lively, with a creamy bead. Drink now. 150,000 cases made.

Mouth-watering zesty as its raspberry, key lime, and white flowers burst in your mouth. The finish is a touch mineral and a touch yeast. It's inexpensive and so quaffable. I like to drink it on hot summer evenings with grilled chicken. It is incredible with sushi. The quality is worth having a few stashed and the price makes it easy to pop one any time or any reason.

|Jaume Serra was founded in 1943 by distinguished enologist Jaume Serra Guell. It is located in the Garraf subdivision of the Denominacion de Origen Penedes, the largest wine growing area in Catalonia. The winery is situated on the 300-acre El Padruel estate and shares the landscape with the famous 17th-century fortress of the same name in the Mediterranean coastal town of Vilanova y la Geltru, some 50 kilometers south of Barcelona. Over the years, the fortress on the estate has played an historical role in navigating the Mediterranean Sea as well as in the Spanish civil war.
