Mas Tinell Carpe Diem Reserva Especial Brut Nature 2008 is a high-end Cava that is only produced in truly exceptional vintages.
This wine by the Heretat Mas Tinell winery was crafted following the traditional Champenoise method.
Prior to being disgorged, the wine was aged for 5 years in the cellar.
It is a strict Brut Nature, which means that no additional sugar was added to the wine after the disgorgement.
This Cava Gran Reserva has a limited production of 15,000 bottles, all of them numbered.
Mas Tinell Carpe Diem 2008 is a first-class sparkling wine from Catalonia.
Mas Tinell Carpe Diem Reserva Especial Brut Nature has a very bright, clean, pale yellow colour with some greenish tinges.
This Grand Reserve sparkling wine by the Mas Tinell winery displays fresh, lively notes of white flowers, aniseed and citrus, along with some remembrances of pastry, menthol and dry fruit.
This blend of Chardonnay, Xarel.lo and Parellada is sexy, creamy and fresh, with a supple body and well-integrated, tiny bubbles. Flowers, butter, citrus, menthol and balsam combine in a most accordant manner. Refreshing, crisp acidity and long, sexy finish.

I found this wine truly inspiring. A very solid core, mineral and tart, and plenty of spicy and fruity nuances. The nose is very sophisticated, and the ending is voluptuous.
