Product Description

Produced by the Agustí Torelló Mata winery (Celler Kripta), the Cava Celler Kripta Barrica Gran Reserva (previously known as Agustí Torelló Mata Gran Reserva Barrica) is a food-friendly Spanish sparkling wine.

A varietal Macabeo, this Cava Gran Reserva is sourced from a single, organically certified vineyard, Pla dels Fidels, planted in 1964.

First, the grapes were fermented and aged on lees for 6 months in French oak barrels.

Then the wine was blended and bottled. After completing secondary fermentation, the cava Celler Kripta Barrica Gran Reserva 2018 was aged for a minimum of 48 months.

Creamy and Champagne-like, this organic and vegan sparkling wine 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.

Additional Information
Additional Information

The Cava Celler Kripta Barrica Gran Reserva 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.

Our personal opinion

We recommend enjoying the Cava Celler Kripta Barrica Gran Reserva 2018 at a temperature slightly higher than usual (8-10ºC).

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

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