Corpinnat Recaredo Serral del Vell 2017
Availability: In stock
The prestigious Recaredo winery, the first Spanish sparkling wine producer to obtain a Demeter Certification for biodynamic agriculture, presents the new vintage of Recaredo Serral del Vell, formerly known as Recaredo Brut de Bruts.
This Corpinnat sparkling wine is produced from grapes sourced exclusively from Finca Serral del Vell, an exceptional vineyard classified as Paraje Cualificado and located on a plateau composed of limestone soils on the riverbanks of the Bitlles river.
This excellent Corpinnat Brut Nature is a blend of Macabeo and Xarel·lo coming from low-yielding vineyards. After a meticulous vinification, Recaredo Serral del Vell 2017 was aged for more a minimum of 72 months in the bottle. Each bottle was manually disgorged.
It is advisable to open the bottle of this organic and biodynamic sparkling wine some time before you drink it.
The sparkling wine Recaredo Finca Serral del Vell is deep straw with some steely and greenish tinges.
Intensely balsamic, this blend of Macabeo and Xarel·lo suggests aromas of white fruit nuanced by hints of fennel, liquorice and aniseed, dim remembrances of lees and white flowers, and some mineral intimations. The nose of this Corpinnat sparkling wine shows real complexity and refinement.
Extremely fresh, with a delightful intrincacy and some potential for growth, this organic sparkling wine of the Recaredo winery nicely combines remembrances of white fruit, Mediterranean herbs, some buttery and creamy notes and a touch of dry fruit. Crisp and dry, extremely pure, the wine ends with an elegantly bitter note, Xarel·lo's trademark.
