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 current vintage of the special cuvée is the 2008 Kripta, a classical blend of the local grapes Macabeo, Xarello and Parellada aged in contact with the lees in bottle for a long time, no less than five years, during which time the bottle is closed with a cork (it's usually a crown stopper). Apparently this gives the wine a different character and is the way it was traditionally done. This is a polished Cava with yeast and brioche aromas and a soft palate with clean, developed flavors and integrated acidity. A benchmark for the Cavas with five years in contact with lees. 24,300 bottles produced.View more

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