Recaredo, Cava Brut Nature Gran Reserva, Penedès 2015

$62.00Price

About the Wine:

It has depth and transparency; complexity and freshness. It is a true expression of the landscape that emerges from the Alt Penedès region’s mosaic of calcareous soils. Its packed with freshness and minerals that provides a bone-dry and long, finish.

 

About the Producer:

The family-owned vineyard with production going back to 1924 works on very low yields, maintaining a commitment to make only vintage brut nature sparkling wines marked by long aging (more than 30 months on the lees). The brand was established with the aim of distinguishing top-class terroir sparkling wines made solely in the heart of the Penedès region (forty minutes from Barcelona) from 100% organic grapes, harvested by hand and entirely vinified on site. Recaredo is the region’s first producer to obtain Demeter’s international certification for biodynamic viticulture using horsetail, chamomile, nettle, and yarrow to control fungus.
