Product Description
Details

One of the very first high-end Cavas produced in Catalonia, Kripta 2008 is the jewel of the Agustí Torelló Mata winery.

The wine comes in a very attractive packaging, a glass amphora that highlights the unique qualities of this Catalan sparkling wine.

A Brut Nature Gran Reserva, that is, produced with no addition of sugar, it is made from a blend of 45% Macabeo, 35% Parellada and 20% Xarel.lo.

All of the grapes come from over 60 year old vines located in some of the best areas in Penedès.

Separately fermented, the resulting wines were blended and bottled to complete secondary fermentation.

After that, this wine of the Agustí Torelló Mata winery was aged for a minimum of 60 months in the cellar.

The disgorging date, November 2015, is printed on the back label.

Production of 24,300 bottles.

Open the bottle 30 minutes before drinking.

Drink now until 2020.

Appearance

Elegant, bright straw yellow colour with some golden tinges.

Nose

Notes of fruit compote, combined with aromas of rose petals, jasmine, dry fruit, pastry, lees, toast, citrus, mint and aromatic herbs.

Palate

Elegant and creamy, with tiny, melting bubbles and a crisp, fresh acidity. Notes of vanilla, butter and ripe white fruit over a background of undergrowth, toast, balsam and flowers. Sophisticated and evocative, with some room for growth. Very long, complex finish.

Our personal opinion

Kripta 2008 is a sexy, classy sparkling wine that will transform any moment into a celebration.
