Product Description
Details

The Torelló winery produces Torelló 225 Brut Nature from vines planted in Finca Can Martí, a 135-hectare estate which belongs to the family since 1935. This Spanish sparkling wine belongs to the Designation of origin Corpinnat.

Made from a blend of Macabeo, Xarel·lo and Parellada, the grapes were gently crushed to obtain only the free-run juice.

Then this Penedès sparkling wine was fermented, after which it was transferred into French oak barrels and aged for about 1 month. Then this Corpinnat brut nature was bottled and added yeasts to induce secondary fermentation.

Once the process was completed, Torelló 225 Brut Nature 2016 was aged for a minimum of 40 months in the cellar.

No shipping liquor was added to the wine after the disgorgement.

Appearance

The sparking wine Torelló 225 Brut Nature has a clean, bright pale yellow colour with some steely glints.

Nose

Very complex on the nose, this blend of Macabeo, Xarel·lo and Parellada suggests vanilla, toast and ripe white fruit, with some remembrances of lees, dry fruit, garrigue and some lactic nuances. Deep and complex, constantly evolving in the glass.

Palate

Pleasant and elegant, this sparkling wine of the Torelló winery has a smooth texture and a delicious, creamy mousse. Very precise acidity, a vinous character and a great freshness. Quince jelly, pear syrup, dry fruit, some buttery remembrances and nuances of aromatic herbs. This Corpinnat brut nature is substantial and very pleasant.

Our personal opinion

An excellent buy, Torelló 225 Brut Nature 2016 is really elegant, deep and terroir-oriented.

This sparkler is surprisingly subtle and enjoyable. I wasn't prepared for this kind of quality, I must confess. It is quite obvious that something important is going on among Catalan sparkling wine producers.

I had read that this was a Cava de Paraja, and so it HAD to be quite good. Well, it actually is. Delicate, caressing, nice bubbles, quite complex, very classy. Better than many Champagnes.
