Description

A still white wine made from 100% Xarel-lo grapes - one of the principal grapes of Cava DO - grown organically in estate vineyards with primarily ancient Calcareous-clay soils, strongly affected by cooling Mediterranean breezes. Fermentation is in stainless steel tanks for 21 days, kept a cool temperature of 16 degrees Celsius. The wine then remains on the lees for a further three months prior to bottling.

Tasting Note

Bright, pale, lemon-yellow colour. Aromas and flavours of fresh citrus (lime) with notes of stone fruits like peach and apricot, and herbs. Dry (1.5gr/L RS), with balanced acidity, good structure and a medium/long clean finish.
Alc./vol/: 11.5% alc./vol..

About the Grape

Xarel-lo: It's not the last grape name alphabetically speaking (Zweigelt is), it's not even the only wine grape that starts with "X" (actually there are 3), but it is an important part of the famous Spanish sparkling wine called Cava. And in case you are wondering it's pronounced chah-REHL-loh.

Growers like it for its vigour, and its contribution to the Cava blend is acidity and certain distinguishing aromas -- stone fruit (apricots), wildflower, almond, and cut grass, in particular.

Agustí Torelló Mata

In the heart of the Penedes, near the town of Sant Sadurní d’Anoia, Agustí Torelló Mata produces a range of high quality Cava (Spanish sparkling wine), featured on the wine lists of many of Spain’s celebrated restaurants. One of their most notable achievements Cava Kripta, unique for its extended ageing and handmade amphora-shaped bottle.

Agustí Torelló Mata is family owned and run; each of the four Torelló siblings has an active role in the business.

While there is movement to use the more fashionable higher-producing grapes like the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in the Cava blend, Agustí Torelló stands firmly with tradition and flavour, by using only Macabeo, Xarello, Parellada, and Trepat (for the Cava rosé). The production is very limited due, among other things, to the age of their vines.

Every bottle of their Cava includes the date of disgorgement, the guarantee that every bottle of Cava is in optimum condition on the market and when consumed by customers.
