This pale straw-yellow colored cava with a hint of greenish reflection is marked by abundant bubbles and a dense crown. It has intense, fruit aromas of green apples mixed with balsamic, spiced and toasted notes that are incorporated in to it during the long aging in barrels. Made from the finest quality, handpicked Macabeo grapes, the Agustí Torelló Mata Gran Reserva Barrica represents one of the finest quality wines in the world. The grapes are first manually harvested and then fermented at low temperatures, which results in a pure base wine which is then used for the final blend. It is then aged for an appropriate amount of time and then bottled without any additional flavoring, truly bringing out the rich grape notes. The rich, fruit aroma and elegant taste beautifully compliments smoked dishes, white meat, fish in sauce and grilled sea food. Cava is known to be dry and delicious, and is supremely refreshing, a great alternative to champagne.
