Product Description
Details

The spectacular Cava Recaredo Turó d'en Mota takes the all-natural, organic and biodynamic philosophy of the Recaredo winery to the extreme.

Considered by many the absolute best Spanish sparkling wine, it is also one of the very few sparklers in the world that stands comparison with the top French Champagnes.

A single varietal Xarel.lo, the grapes of this Cava from Penedès come from a 1.5 hectare vineyard planted in 1940 that brings the wine its name ("Turó d'en Mota" means "Mota Hill")

Thus, the idea of the Recaredo winemakers is quite clear. One variety - one vineyard - one vintage. The result is a world-class sparkling wine.

Exquisitely crafted following the traditional method, Recaredo Turó d'en Mota 2006 was aged for a minimum of 120 months in the cellar prior to its commercial release. No shipping liquor was added to the wine after the disgorging date printed on the back label.

We suggest that you open the bottle of this Brut Nature Gran Reserve a minimum of 1 hour before you drink it.

Properly stored, this will drink beautifully until at least 2028.

Appearance

The Cava Recaredo Turó d'en Mota has a crisp, pale yellow coloured body with some steely and greenish tinges.

Nose

The complexity of the nose leaves one speechless. Fresh, ripe yellow fruit, combined with floral notes and aromas of lees that, as the wine opens, give way to camomile, dry fruit, flint, tea leaves, dry earth, citrus, ginger, aniseed, limestone... to name only a few. This single varietal Xarel·lo has a mind-blowing richness.

Palate

Purity, intensity and an unbelievable depth. This organic sparkling wine by Recaredo has a razor-sharp acidity, with an exceptional balance and some caressing, wonderfully integrated bubbles. The purest expression of fruit goes hand in hand with a fabulously detailed texture. There are some deep mineral notes, enticing bitter remembrances, an amazing sense of terroir and a never-ending, unforgettable finish.  

Our personal opinion

Withouth exaggeration, Recaredo Turó d'en Mota 2006 is one of the best sparkling wines in the world. Drinking this long aged Cava is quite an unforgettable experience.

The best Cava ever. Period. It will live for 15, 20 or probably more years. I'm of the opinion that, mystique aside, the best Catalan sparklers have definitely caught up with Champagne.
