Details

Produced by the Agustí Torelló Mata winery, Agustí Torelló Mata Gran Reserva Barrica is a single varietal Macabeo Spanish sparkling wine.

This Cava Gran Reserva is made from vines which are 30 years old on average.

As for its production, 40% of the base wine was fermented and aged in its lees for 8 months in French oak barrels.

After the completion of secondary fermentation, this Cava was aged for a minimum of 60 months.

A different take on traditional Cava, Agustí Torello Mata Gran Reserva Barrica 2012 deserves a try.

Additional Information

Appearance

The Cava from Penedès, Agustí Torelló Gran Reserva Barrica has a clean, pale straw-yellow body with golden reflections.

Nose

The combination of the Macabeo with the ageing in oak barrels is enticing. A note of baked cinnamon apples, some balsamic notes, a hint of ginger and fennel, and a pinch of dry fruit.

Palate

The entrance onto the palate of this Gran Reserve Cava from Agustí Torelló Mata is creamy and dry. Vanilla, pastry and toasted almonds, with a note of quince and some aromatic herbs. Crisp acidity, and persistent finish with some nutty notes and a bitter touch.

Our personal opinion

We would recommend enjoying Agustí Torelló Mata Gran Reserva Barrica 2012 at a temperature slightly higher than usual (8-10ºC) in order to enjoy its distinctive qualities.

    The body is solid. In my mind, more a still than a sparkler. Delightful in any case.

  2. great sparkler review by Morrissey on 1/29/2018

    Creamy, structured, wonderfully textured. Very vinous, so to speak. Superb with white meat and all kinds of cheese.
