Recaredo Terrers Brut Nature Corpinnat 2015

Catalunya (Catalonia Cataluña), SpainSearing acidity drives this biodynamic wine, sourced from estate vineyards in the calcareous soils of Alt Penedès' Bitlles Valley Highlands. You understand the soils at once, with the grip and freshness inherent in this striking fizz. I love the transparency in labelling here: this blend of Xarello, Macabeo, Parellada, and Monastrell aged 39 months under cork, was disgorged on May 30, 2019, and was hand disgorged without freezing the neck (due to aging under cork rather than crown cap) and with no dosage. Green apple, lemon pith, earthy yeast, broken stones is tight on the taut, humming palate, gripped with chalk on the sides, and finishing with a brisk astringency on the bone dry palate. Fantastic energy.Tasted: 16 January 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 45.95 consignment Producer: RecaredoDistributors: That's Life Gourmet
