Product Description
Details

Produced by the Recaredo winery, Recaredo Subtil is made from grapes coming from a single estate, called Serral del Roure. The word "Subtil" (Subtle) is not an overstatement, but a rather accurate description of this organic Spanish sparkling wine.

All of Recaredo's vineyards are estate-owned and Demeter certified, proving the commitment of the winery to the principles of biodynamic agriculture. The winery also belongs to Corpinnat, a recently established association of Cava producers that aims to bring together those wineries with the highest quality standards.

A varietal Xarel·lo, the grapes were traditionally vinified. Then Recaredo Subtil 2015 was bottled and aged for a minimum of 66 months in the cellar.

Finally, this Corpinnat sparkling wine was manually disgorged and added no shipping liquor.

11,500 bottles produced.

Appearance

The organic sparkling wine Recaredo Subtil has a pale, straw-yellow colour with some greenish tinges.

Nose

This varietal Xarel·lo has an inviting, evocative nose. Creamy aromas of raw almonds and toasted hazelnuts, nuanced by remembrances of pastry, spices and white flowers, as well as aromas of toast, aniseed and citrus. An expressive Gran Reserva Brut Nature.

Palate

Fresh and creamy, with mineral remembrances, as well as notes of dry fruit, balsam, roasted almonds and white flowers. This Corpinnat sparkler has depth and impulse, an excellent acidity and a silky texture. This wine of Caves Recaredo has a very long, complex finish.

Our personal opinion

Fresh and delicate, Recaredo Subtil 2015 is a good choice for a romantic evening.
