Produced by the Agustí Torelló Mata winery, Agustí Torelló Mata Gran Reserva Barrica is a particularly food-friendly Spanish sparkling wine.
A varietal Macabeo, this Cava Gran Reserva is made from vines which are 30 years old on average.
First, the grapes were fermented and aged on lees for 8 months in French oak barrels.
Then the wine was blended and bottled. After completing secondary fermentation, Agustí Torello Mata Gran Reserva Barrica 2016 was aged for a minimum of 48 months.
Creamy and Champagne-like, this is a different take on traditional Cava. It certainly deserves a try.
We suggest drinking this Cava gran reserva brut nature from Penedès throughout an entire meal.
The Cava from Penedès Agustí Torelló Gran Reserva Barrica is pale yellow with golden reflections.
The characteristics of the Macabeo variety make it particularly suitable for oak ageing. Baked cinnamon apples, some balsamic notes, a hint of ginger and fennel, and a pinch of dry fruit and lime zest.
The entrance onto the palate of this cava gran reserva from Agustí Torelló Mata is creamy and gently dry. Round and nuanced, with a crisp acidity and a persistent finish with some nutty notes and a bitter touch.
