Details

The Cava Torelló 225 Brut Nature Gran Reserva is made from the three traditional varieties, Macabeo, Xarel·lo and Parellada.

The over 40-year-old vineyards are planted in a very particular site, Finca Can Martí, whose exceptional characteristics made possible that this wine was given the Cava de Paraje Calificado seal, a distinction which is only granted to absolute top-tier Cavas.

The grapes were gently pressed and the free-run juice was fermented and aged for some months in 225-litre French oak barrels from Allier and Limousine.

After that, this Spanish Sparkling wine by the Torelló winery completed secondary fermentation in the bottle and was subsequently aged for a minimum of 36 months.

Drink this gran reserva from Penedès until 2023.

Additional Information

Appearance

The Cava Torelló 225 Brut Nature Gran Reserva has a clean, bright pale yellow colour with some steely glints.

 

Nose

Very complex on the nose, this Cava de Paraje Calificado 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 Cava by Torelló 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 Cava aged in oak is substantial and very pleasant.

 

Our personal opinion

An excellent buy, Torelló 225 Brut Nature Gran Reserva 2013 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.

  2. Torelló review by Jake Gittes on 10/25/2017
    Value

    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.
