Case of 6 bottles (individually boxed)
Kripta, was created in 1979 by Agustí Torelló Mata. This unique Cava has been described by Michel Bettane, an influential wine critic in France, as a sparkling wine comparable to the very best champagnes: “Wonderful and delicate walnut aromas, refined texture and bubbles, very seducing finish. The perfection of Cava or almost, and a wine that shall surprise many people.” He included Kripta in his book of “The Best 100 Wines of the World” along with 4 other sparkling wines (all Champagne).
The label and logo was designed by Rafael Bartolozzi. The bottle is amphora-shaped, and produced by hand. Each bottle comes in a special box - perfect for gift-giving.
Made using local indigenous grapes – Macabeo (45%), Xarel-lo (20%), and Parellada (35%) – from 70+ year old vines, following the traditional method of making champagne. A second fermentation takes place in the bottle over a period of eight years, approximately the same amount of time as some of champagne’s great marques.

Certified organic. 11.5% alc./vol.; 0.6 g/l residual sugar (bottled brut nature).
Our Tasting Note: Pale straw-yellow colour, with golden hues and a slow-evolving, very fine, and persistent mousse. A clean and crisp bouquet reminiscent of hazelnuts, fresh citrus, and ripe fruits – pear and yellow apple - with notes of lightly buttered toast, vanilla spice, and truffle. Very elegant and delicate with a lingering, clean finish. Recommended serving temperature - 7-8 degrees celsius.
