From a highly regarded family of biodynamic producers, this bone-dry Cava displays a fine, gentle mousse and flavours of waxy, glazed apples, herbs and lemon. It has wonderful chalky minerality with notes of nutmeg and ginger. There is a wonderful fleshy texture redolent of poached pears.
Recaredo seek to ensure the natural balance of the vine, aiming to achieve the best expression of every individual vintage. Therefore, the viticulture is based on dry farming with grapes harvested by hand. They prioritise respect for biodiversity and the environment: cultivating vines without using herbicides or insecticides and only employing natural organic fertilisers. Over the winter, the wine remains in contact with its finest lees, giving it volume and body and becomes naturally clarified. The grape juice from the oldest Xarel·lo vines ferment in oak barrels yielding structure and greater complexity for longer-aged cavas. Some of the base wine is aged in oak barrels for some months. This wine will be used to add greater finesse and structure to the final blending.
