Carefully vinified following traditional procedures, after the completion of alcoholic and secondary fermentations, this Spanish sparkling wine from the Agustí Torelló Mata winery was aged for a minimum of 36 months in the cellar.
Being a Brut nature, after the disgorgement of the bottle neither shipping-liquor nor sugar was added to Agustí Torelló Mata Gran Reserva Brut Nature 2012. Thus, residual sugar is only 0.5 grams per litre.
The disgorging date is printed on the back label. Drink this Cava from Penedès through 2024.
The Cava Agustí Torelló Mata Gran Reserva Brut Nature has a clean straw yellow colour with some greenish tinges.
Pleasantly intense, this Brut Nature Gran Reserva carries aromas of butter, pastry, cooked fruit and citrus, combined with notions of dry fruit, bitter herbs and some mineral suggestions.
Creamy, savoury and fresh, this Gran Reserva from Agustí Torelló Mata is delicately toasted and buttery, with a fleck of dry fruit, citrus and aromatic herbs. Tiny, melting bubbles, well-balanced acidity and long finish.
