How to serve
In Agusti Torello Mata we have one goal: preparing the cava at its best. Our cellars are creations that leave work, enthusiasm and passion of an entire family.More about the Winery
The 2006 Kripta is a blend of 45% Macabeu, 20% Xarello and 35% Parellada from 60+-year-old vines with no dosage. It has a lovely almond and brioche-scented bouquet with lemon rind and lime leaf, all with superb delineation. The palate is very refined on the entry with palpable minerality, great tension and poise. It possesses a minimalist, focused finish with hints of green apple, lime and a little vanilla pod. Excellent. Drink now-2018+. 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

We paired the Agustí Torelló Mata Kripta Gran Reserva with a starter.
I had it at some good friends house.
