Recaredo Cava Brut Nature Terrers Gran Reserva 2010 (1x75cl)

For almost a century, Recaredo has maintained a firm commitment to produce terroir wines that reflect the landscapes of the Alt Penedès (Barcelona) as honestly and transparently as possible. They make only vintage Brut Nature Cavas with a distinctive character marked by long ageing.

Recaredo's wines are both organic and biodynamic; they let plant cover grow spontaneously between the vines. This cover crop plays a crucial role, fostering biodiversity, loosening the soil, and regulating water retention and drainage (essential in the dry farming system practised).

Key winemaking features: 52% Xarel-lo, 32% Macabeu, 16% Parellada. Manually harvested; 9% of the blend aged in oak casks; secondary fermentation in bottle (as with all Cava and Champagne); aged in bottle for a minimum of 5 years and 5 months; riddled and disgorged by hand.

This outstanding Cava is completely dry. It has wonderful chalky minerality with notes of nutmeg and ginger. There is a wonderful fleshy texture redolent of poached pears. Matches many things, but especially shellfish, soft cheese or rice dishes.
