Cava is a Spanish sparkling wine, produced exactly like Champagne and with a similar taste, but with a different variety of grapes (primarily Macabeo). Macabeu isn’t overly-sweet and has subtle floral aromatics with a hint of lemon. The Xarel-lo grape component is more overtly aromatic with notes of melon/pear, and the Paralleda grape is blended in for it’s powerful acidity and citrus flavours.
Best wine shop in NZ, the staff are amazing and the selection is outstanding. Don't risk buying unknown wines at the supermarket, go to these expert guys and get hooked up with the best options possible relative to your taste.
Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.
I've just ordered online for a friend in another city and I was impressed with the ease of use on the website. Wines are listed with excellent information on tasting notes and professional reviews, as well as being well categorised for easy search. I also called the store with a query about ordering online and they were so incredibly helpful and friendly on the phone. Highly recommend
Best wine retailer in Christchurch. Awesome selection and when they special the wine you know that it is good value. They don't offload the bulk stuff
Great selection of wine for excellent price. Also very nice and helpful customer service. Definitely I'll became a regular customer from now on.
I am overseas and ordered 6 bottles of wine for a gift. The wine selection on offer was very impressive and at great prices. The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.
