Product Description
Details

This is the second vintage of Recaredo Terrers Brut Nature since the Recaredo winery left the Cava designation to join the Corpinnat association.

This time, this Spanish sparkling wine is made from a very original blend of Xarel·lo, Macabeo, Parellada and Monastrell.

This excellent Gran Reserva Brut Nature is made from vines planted in differents kinds of soils, all of them with a high limestone content. They are grown following the guidelines of organic and biodynamic farming.

Harvested by hand, the grapes were separately vinified. Subsequently, 5% of this Corpinnat sparkling wine was aged in oak barrels.

After its bottling, Recaredo Terrers Brut Nature Gran Reserva 2016 was aged for a minimum of 36 months and manually disgorged - with no addition of shipping liquor - prior to its commercial release. The disgorging date is printed on the back label.

Open the bottle 15 minutes before drinking.

Appearance

The gran reserve Cava Recaredo Terrers Brut Nature has a very bright, clean, pale yellow colour with some golden tinges.

Nose

The nose of Terrers from Recaredo is pure and very elegant. Deep, elegant mineral notes combined with aromas of white fruit, a dash of white flowers and notions of smoke and dry fruit. This organic Cava has a delicately balsamic background.

Palate

Very fresh, this Brut Nature with Monastrell has a crisp and well-defined structure which is dry and smooth at the same time. The bubbles of this Corpinnat sparkling wine are perfectly integrated, and the wine has a long finish with a delicate remembrance of aniseed and white fruit, nuanced by a smoky touch.

Our personal opinion

A delightful sparkling wine, Recaredo Terrers Brut Nature Gran Reserva 2016 is worthy of a connoisseur's attention. Price is beyond reasonable.
