Vallformosa | 'MVSA' | Brut
Vallformosa is a family owned (owners, the Domenechs, are descendent from one of Cava’s pioneers), medium-sized house making a full range of Cavas and table wines. For our market, their best work is with two splendid entry-level Cavas, which are stylish, satisfying and great value.
A full-flavoured style with ripe custard apple, straw and nice golden eggy richness. Balanced, with a neat, clean finish.
MVSA is their modern, alternate label, and stands for Masia Vallformosa SA – their company name (SA is the Spanish equivalent of Pty Ltd).
