Product Description
Details

Arguably the first high-end Cava produced in Catalonia, Kripta 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 Spanish sparkling wine.

Produced with no addition of sugar, this Brut Nature Gran Reserva is made from a blend of 45% Macabeo, 35% Parellada and 20% Xarel·lo. Located in some of the best areas in Penedès, the grapevines are over 60 years of age.

Separately fermented, the base wines were blended and bottled to complete secondary fermentation. After that, Kripta 2013 winery was aged for a minimum of 60 months in before its commercial release.

As with all of the winery's sparkling wines, the disgorging date of this Cava Gran Reserva of the Agustí Torelló Mata winery is printed on the back label.

14,498 bottles produced.

Appearance

The Cava Kripta is deep straw with some golden tinges.

Nose

Complex and seductive, this blend of Macabeo, Xarel·lo and Parellada smells of white fruit compote, combined with remembrances of pastry, almonds and nuts, some mineral and balsamic remembrances, and a dash of smoke and flint.

Palate

Elegant and creamy, this Cava of Agustí Torelló Mata has a citrusy acidity enlivened by some tiny, melting bubbles. Notes of vanilla, butter and ripe white fruit over a background of undergrowth, toast, balsam and flowers. Sophisticated and evocative, with a long, evocative finish.

Our personal opinion

Classy and smooth, Kripta 2013 of Agustí Torelló is a great celebration wine.
