The Torelló winery produces Torelló Brut Nature Gran Reserva from vines over 40 years of age.
They are planted in Finca Can Martí, a 135-hectare estate which belongs to the family since 1935. This is the first vintage produced under the Corpinnat label, an association of high-level Catalan sparkling wine producers which decided to leave the Cava Designation due to disagreements regarding quality standards.
Then this Cava was fermented, bottled and added yeasts to induce secondary fermentation. Once the process was completed, Torelló Brut Nature Gran Reserva 2013 was aged for a minimum of 50 months in the cellar. No shipping liquor was added after the disgorgement.
The Cava Torelló Brut Nature has a pale, bright yellow colour with some grey tinges.
This expressive Torelló Tradicional Brut Nature smells of dry fruit, herbs and flowers, precise and well defined. This Corpinnat sparkler is enlivened by a surprising salty remembrance.
Pleasant and fresh, this Brut Nature from Torelló has some creamy, smooth bubbles and crisp acidity. Fresh notes of ripe white fruit, Mediterranean herbs, dry fruit, and flowers. Long, delicately bitter finish.
