Casa de Saima Espumante Bruto '16

If there were a sparkling wine mascot of Perman Wine Selections it would be that of Casa de Saima.

That is because for years, we have been championing this wine as one of THE best sparkling wine values you can buy for $15 or less.

Producing sparkling wine, particularly in the Champagne method, is labor intensive. You are not just fermenting once, you are doing it twice. Your approach as a winemaker has to be totally different than with a still wine.

So it is particularly impressive what Graça Miranda and her team do at Casa de Saima. For their Espumante they blend the two local white grapes of the region, Bical and Maria Gomes. The first fermentation occurs in tank, before it is moved to bottle. Just like in Champagne, the wine undergoes a second fermentation in bottle, aged on its lees for a little over a year, and then disgorged.

There is no mistaking this for a sparkler from France or even Spain for that matter. It is distinctly Portuguese, and more important distinctly Bairrada.

Fresh and aromatic with notes of apple, pear, spice and mineral. It is bright and focused on the palate, with a juicy, straightforward approach that keeps you coming back for another glass.
