The 2008 Agusti Torello Mata Gran Reserva Barrica is a pure Macabeu, of which 38% is fermented in new French 300-litre barrels for eight months, the remainder in stainless steel. Close your eyes and you would think this was a rose Cava, for there are attractive notes of red cherry and a touch of strawberry within its alluring aromatic profile. The palate has a creamy entry that is counterbalanced by the crisp, citric thread and steely finish infused with brioche and dandelion. Superb. Drink now-2016. Although Agusti Torello was founded in 1950, this estate sold its Cava to other producers for twenty or thirty years before taking the plunge and bottling themselves. Their philosophy and tagline is: “Cava with soul,” something sceptics might smirk at, at least until they taste them. All fruit is sourced from Penedes from organically cultivated vines and they concentrate upon Reserva and Gran Reserva only.View more
Reviews of Agustí Torelló Mata Gran Reserva Barrica 2008
Very light flavour. Very yeasty and biscuity on the nose. As many 2014, it was a little rough.
The ideal wine to finish a meal.
Has a very cheerful colour. Good yeast aromas enhance a wine's bouquet. It tasted like a mouth-watering candy.
Agustí Torelló Matata Brut Gran Reserva Barrica 2012
Has a strong colour. I loved the smell of baking. It has a slightly salty final.
It's better not to pair it and drink it alone.
