In our catalogue at Ebuywines.com we have exclusively, in stock and preserved in perfect condition the four vintages of the great cava Recaredo Turó d’en Mota, characteristic for its elegance and simplicity, as well as for a very limited production. This cava has also top ratings by Robert Parker.
The vineyard Turó d’ Mota, property of Cavas Recaredo, is located in Sant Adumi d’Anoia, in Alt Penedès, a particularly cold area, north oriented, where the grapes keep an acidity of great vivacity, allowing an ageing process longer than usual: more than 100 months in contact with its lees. This cava has also the honour of being the first Cava Gran Cru produced in Spain.
The four vintages are characterized by their elaborate cépage Xarel.lo, from the parcel “Turó D’en Mota”, planted in 1940 on extreme calcareous soils with a silty loam structure (a balance of sand, silt and clay) and presence of calcareous nodules.
The Recaredo Turó d’en Mota 1999, with 2,973 bottles produced, distinguishes itself by its elegance and a higher acidity, as a result of the cold, dry weather on that same year; Recaredo Turó d’en Mota 2000, with 2,990 bottles, is characterized by its exuberance; Recaredo Turó d’en Mota 2001, 2,770 bottles, was the last one to be released on the market, even later than the 2002 vintage; Recaredo Turó d’en Mota 2002 is the most scarce with only 2. 703 bottles produced and, in addition, was the best rated by the Guide to the Best Wines of Catalonia 2013, in a blind tasting among 1,724 wines from 370 Catalonian wineries, scoring 9.81 points out of 10 and ranking as the best Catalonian cava and wine.
From eBuyWines.com cannot recommed enough this cava that represents the elegance of simplicity: one vineyard, one single grape variety, one vintage and a very limited production.
