Product Description
Details

The word "Terrers" means both "soil" and "terroir" in Catalan. Recaredo Terrers Mágnum honours its name.

A blend of Xarel·lo, Macabeo and Parellada, the vines grow in soils with different compositions, all with a high calcareous content. Like all the vineyards of the Recaredo winery, they are farmed following the guidelines of organic and biodynamic agriculture (Recaredo is a Demeter certified company.)

Traditionally crafted, the grapes were separately vinified before the final blend was decided. Then this Spanish sparkling wine was bottled to complete secondary fermentation. After that, it was aged in the cellar for a minimum of 45 months.

Finally, Recaredo Terrers Magnum 2014 was manually disgorged. No sugar was added after that operation.

The disgorging date of this Corpinnat sparkler is printed on the back label.

Appearance

Clean and bright, Recaredo Terrers Magnum has a straw yellow colour with some golden tinges.

Nose

Delicately complex, this blend of Xarel·lo, Macabeo and Parellada exhibits some nuanced aromas of ripe white fruit, white roses, jasmine, citrus and dry fruit. We also perceive some remembrances of white mineral and some earthy hints.

Palate

Gentle and savoury, this Corpinnat sparkling wine of Caves Recaredo has some creamy, palate-caressing bubbles and a silky body. Suggestions of citrus, white flowers, petals of white roses, toasted almonds, hazelnuts, aromatic herbs and pastry. Long, linear, pleasant finish.

Our personal opinion

The organic and biodynamic Cava Recaredo Terrers Magnum 2014 is a sophisticated sparkler that comes in a 1.5-litre bottle, thus making it perfect for parties and celebrations.
