Reserva Particular 2008

Brut Nature Long Ageing

   

In 1962 Josep Mata Capellades, in close collaboration with his sons Josep and Antoni, created the Reserva Particular de Recaredo with the original idea of conveying the delicateness and the subtle complexity of a long-aged sparkling wine without sacrificing freshness and the most authentic expression of time.

Reserva Particular de Recaredo represents the Mediterranean in its purest form, interprets the calcareous lands of the easternmost part of the Penedès region and shows the profound character of our oldest Xarel·lo and Macabeu vines.

Mineral and complex, full of inner life with long-lasting flavour. Completely dry brut nature sparkling wine with no added sugar. We recommend serving Reserva Particular at around 10°C and opening the bottle a few minutes before serving.

Recaredo, family of winegrowers. Reserva Particular de Recaredo is made with the Mediterranean varieties Xarel·lo and Macabeu from old vineyards planted between 1950 and 1955 in the sloping banks of the Corpinnat territory (county of Alt Penedès, Barcelona).

Hand-harvested grapes. Harvesting is done completely by hand to maintain the properties of the grapes used for a long-aged sparkling wine.

In-house vinification. Vinification, winemaking and ageing are carried out entirely in Recaredo.

Long-aged wines. Secondary fermentation and bottle ageing are done exclusively with natural cork stoppers. Cork is sustainable, recyclable and ideal for retaining the original character of a long-aged sparkling wine.

Manual disgorging without freezing. Disgorging (the uncorking process) is done by hand without freezing the neck of the bottle, a technique based on skilled craftsmanship and respect for the environment.

Vibrant and balanced vintage, marked by meteorological contrasts, with high temperatures and little rain in the autumn and winter months. In the end, the grapes harvested were of high quality and in exceptionally good health.

In order to guarantee the maximum expressiveness and quality of the wine we work with low yields in the vineyard. In the case of 2008 vintage, the average yield of Recaredo vines was 34.2 hl/ha.

Serral del Vell 2014

Brut Nature Long Ageing

   

From the 2008 vintage on, we changed the name of our historic “Recaredo Brut de Brut” sparkling wine to “Recaredo Serral del Vell” to reflect our commitment to the great terroirs of the Alt Penedès wine region.

Recaredo Serral del Vell is a completely dry brut nature sparkling wine with no added sugar. We recommend serving it at around 10°C and opening the bottle a few minutes before serving.

56%  Xarel·lo · 44%  Macabeu

Single-estate character. Grapes harvested from Recaredo’s Serral del Vell Estate, which stands on a small plateau (serral) carved out of the Bitlles Valley Highlands on a mainly calcareous terrain.

Biodynamic viticulture, a step beyond organic farming. We let plant cover grow spontaneously between the vines. This cover plays a crucial role in loosening the soil, regulating water retention and drainage, and helping to foster biodiversity. Infusions of plants are applied to the vines to control the presence of fungus in the vineyard and strengthen the vine's defences.
