Sometimes style and substance are simply not in sync. Example: this tasty little bubbly in a frankly hideous bottle.
Pata Negra is grown on a 17th century walled estate in Barcelona, on a steep hillside overlooking the Mediterranean. Organically farmed Macabeo, with an average of 30 year old vines. Champagne method, with the second fermentation in the bottle. They're doing everything right except the bottle itself.
Pata Negra has an elegant, creamy mousse, with tiny delicate bubbles. Flavors of apple and citrus with faint herbal notes and just a touch of biscuity complexity on the dry, crisp finish.
You can't buy decent Prosecco at this price, let alone quality Champagne method bubbly. Who CARES about the bottle? After all, you're not drinking the label.
