Corpinnat Recaredo Terrers Magnum 2017
Availability: In stock
In the Catalan language, the word "Terrers" means both "soil" and "terroir". The Corpinnat sparkler Recaredo Terrers Mágnum certainly 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 2017 was manually disgorged. No sugar was added after that operation.
The disgorging date of this Corpinnat brut nature sparkling wine is printed on the back label.
Clean and bright, Recaredo Terrers Magnum is medium straw with some golden tinges.
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.
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.
