Bodegas Naveran Dama CavaOne of only a few vintage Cavas made in Spain. Dama is full-bodied yet bright and crisp. The Naverán estate has been producing high-quality Cavas since 1901. All Cavas made here are from vineyards owned and controlled by the estate. Dama is fermented in the bottle (a la méthode champenoise) and aged in its lees for 24 months.Caves Navera´n is a premium Cava producer that uses estate-grown grapes. Navera´n Dama is a Cava masterpiece, a combination of Chardonnay, which gives the wine body and volume, and Parellada, which imparts a zesty, bright character that cuts through the buttery roundness of the Chardonnay. Champagne lovers will enjoy this Mediterranean "farmer's fizz" with oysters, raw tuna and sushi. Its fresh acidity also compliments fruit desserts, especially peaches and sliced oranges.
