The emblematic ‘Brut de Brut’ is renamed ‘Serral del Vell’

The emblematic ‘Recaredo Brut de Brut’ is renamed ‘Recaredo Serral del Vell’ from the 2008 vintage on, taking as a reference the name of the estate from which we made this Brut Nature aged for over 8 years on the lees.  As growers committed to the territory, we want to express the great terroirs of the Penedès wine region.

Recaredo Serral del Vell

Recaredo’s Serral del Vell Estate

 Serral del Vell

Serral del Vell is a place of great beauty – an area full of Xarel·lo and Macabeu vineyards, where the imposing Montserrat Mountain watches over a space that is topographically and geologically distinct from its surroundings. The Serral del Vell estate stands on a small plateau (serral) carved out of the Bitlles Valley Highlands and the winding gullies that run into the Lavernó Ravine. The plateau has several large, gently sloping terraces that men have shaped by creating margins and embankments.

 

Single character soils

The soil of the Serral del Vell plateau contains calcareous nodules and quite a bit of limestone from the Serra del Mar and the Serra Catalana, deposited in the area due to erosion. The estate is characterised by a loamy soil texture (balanced mix of sands, silts and clays), with an abundance of stones and gravel, which provides good levels of drainage and allows water to deeply penetrate the roots of the vines.
