Corpinnat Recaredo Turó d'en Mota 2008
Availability: Out of stock
The spectacular Recaredo Turó d'en Mota takes the ultra-local and minimal intervention biodynamic philosophy of the Recaredo winery to the extreme.
Considered by many the absolute best Spanish sparkling wine, it is also one of the few world sparklers that stands comparison with top-tier French Champagnes.
A varietal Xarel·lo, the grapes of this Penedès sparkling wine come from a 1.5 hectare vineyard planted in 1940 that gives the wine its name ("Turó d'en Mota" means "Mota Hill")
The idea of the winemakers is thus quite clear. One variety - one vineyard - one vintage. The result is a one-of-a-kind Corpinnat Brut Nature sparkling wine.
Exquisitely crafted following the traditional method, Recaredo Turó d'en Mota 2008 was aged for a minimum of 150 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 Corpinnat Brut Nature 30 minutes before you drink it.

The sparkling wine Recaredo Turó d'en Mota is pale yellow with some steely and greenish tinges.
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 varietal Xarel·lo has a mind-blowing richness.
This organic sparkling wine from Recaredo has a razor-sharp acidity, 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 place and a never-ending, exquisite finish.
