Corpinnat Recaredo Terrers Brut Nature 2018
Availability: In stock
This is the new vintage of Recaredo Terrers Brut Nature from bodega Caves Recaredo, a member of the Corpinnat association of producers.
As usual, this Spanish sparkling wine is made from a traditional blend of Xarel·lo, Macabeo and Parellada.
The grapes are sorted 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 the wine was aged in oak barrels.
After its bottling, Recaredo Terrers Brut Nature Gran Reserva 2018 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 of this Corpinnat brut nature sparkling wine is printed on the back label.
The gran reserva sparkling wine Recaredo Terrers Brut Nature is medium yellow with some golden tinges.
The nose of this blend of Macabeo, Xarel·lo and Parellada is pure and very elegant. Elegant mineral notes with aromas of white fruit, a dash of white flowers and notions of smoke and dry fruit. This Corpinnat Brut Nature has a delicately balsamic background.
Very fresh, with a crisp and well-defined structure which is dry and smooth at the same time. The bubbles of this sparkling wine of the Recaredo winery are perfectly integrated, and the wine has a long finish with a delicate remembrance of aniseed and white fruit, nuanced by a smoky touch.
