Vineyard:Cal Mota and Mas Oliver Estates

Age of the Vineyard: 60 years

Winemaking: All the Xarel.lo grapes are fermented in oak barrels. Vinification, production and ageing are carried out entirely in our cellars. The second fermentation and the ageing in bottle in contact with the ``lees`` is done exclusively with a natural cork. Cork is sustainable, recyclable and ideal for retaining the original sense of a long-aged Cava. The final clarification is done by hand in the racks. The uncorking process (Disgorgement) is done by hand without freezing the bottle neck, handcrafted professionalism and respect for the environment. It is a Brut Nature Cava, completely dry without addition of sugar. The date of uncorking (Disgorgement) and the months of ageing on the lees are shown on the back label.

Winery Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes: 8 years in contact with the lees. It represents the Mediterranean in its purest form, interprets the calcareous lands of the Alt Penedès and shows the character of Recaredo’s oldest vines. Mineral and complex, full of inner life, with long-lasting flavour. Solid and defined. A great and radical expression of the soil. Food recommendations would be risottos, paellas or poultry (roast chicken or duck), fish, and shell fish.
