Agusti Torello Mata
Cava Kripta Gran Reserva Brut Nature
The Kripta Gran Anyada 2006 is a unique and exclusive Cava, with an ageing of 9 years, and of which only 3588 bottles were produced for the whole world. The Kripta Gran Anyada is produced only in those years, in which the harvest in 3 specific parcels with old vines produces exceptional fruits. That was the case with the vintage 2006.
Kripta Gran Anyada / 2006 (88 tsomw points)
Grape variety: Macabeo, Xarello en Parellada
Very unique bottle – in Amphora shaped style.
In the glass a cloudy golden color.
In the nose aromas of apples, quince, honey and yellow fruit.
On the palate, silky well integrated bubbles, pleasant acidity combined wine. Flavored pastries, brioche, with a final pleasant sensation, sweet and enveloping, fine and delicate taste with a very long, creamy background of toasty and buttery.
The first GRAND VINTAGE KRIPTA is the opera prima of Agustí Torelló Mata after 60 years dedicated to make Cava.
In 2006 we had an excel.lent harvest with exceptional characteristics to make this long aging cava: high concentration of flavors, special sugar and good acidity
Made from three very old vineyards:
- El Vicari (Sant Pau d’Ordal), white grape Macabeu, planted in 1962 (Alt 239 m)
- Mercader (Sant Sadurní d’Anoia, white grape Xarel·lo, planted in 1974 (Alt 162 m)
- La Lola (Sant Joan de Mediona), white grape Parellada, planted in 1969 (Alt 650 m)
We have waiting for a decade in the Penedes area, to release this exceptional KRIPTA in a perfect balance.
