    Notes about Cava Recaredo Terrers Brut Nature Magnum:

    Depth and transparency. Complexity and freshness.

    Recaredo Terrers represents the most sincere expression of the landscape of Alt Penedès, an age-old winegrowing area. Made using grapes from a select mosaic of vineyards that grow in the highly calcareous soils that give our long-aged sparkling wines their distinctive character.

    Made using grapes from a select mosaic of own vineyards that grow in the Bitlles River Valley Highlands (Coster del Bitlles), in the county of the Alt Penedès, Barcelona.


    Family of winegrowers

    Recaredo Terrers Magnum is made with grapes from vineyards that grow in highly calcareous, loamy soils (balance of sand, silt and clay).

    The soil provides good levels of drainage in the upper areas and a higher water retention capacity in lower areas, where the soil depth is also greater.

    Organic viticulture

    No chemical herbicides or insecticides are used in Recaredo’s vineyards– only natural, organic fertilisers.

    We let plant cover grow spontaneously between the vines. This cover crop plays a crucial role, fostering biodiversity, loosening the soil, and regulating water retention and drainage (essential in the dry farming system we practise).

    2010 Vintage

    The vintage is vibrant and balanced, marked by meteorological contrasts, with high temperatures and little rain in the autumn and winter months. Rains were erratic in the spring, and in May a record rainfall was recorded in the vineyards (155.7 l/m2).

    Mildew came on hard but the biodynamic treatments we applied proved highly effective. In the end, the grapes harvested were of high quality and in exceptionally good health.

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

    • Average yield for Recaredo vineyards in 2010: 44.2 hl/ha

    • Upper limit set by the Cava Regulatory Board in 2010: 80 hl/ha

    Less production, greater expressiveness and quality.

    In-house vinification

    Vinification, winemaking and ageing are carried out entirely at Recaredo to ensure strict control of the origin of grapes and maximum transparency in production processes.

    To enhance structure and elegance, 4 % of the blend consists of wines that have been aged in oak casks.

    The excellence of long-aged wines

    Secondary fermentation and bottle ageing are done exclusively with natural cork stoppers, a sustainable, recyclable material from nature, ideal for retaining the original sense of Recaredo’s long-aged wines.

    Remuage (riddling) is done by hand on traditional racks.

    Manual disgorging without freezing

    Disgorging (the art of expelling the lees from the second bottle fermentation that then leaves the wine perfectly clear) is done by hand without freezing the bottle neck by skilled masters: an artisanal, environmentally friendly process.

    Recaredo Terrers is a completely dry brut nature sparkling wine with no added sugar.

    It should be stored at around 15 ºC. We recommend serving it at 8-10 ºC and opening the bottle a few minutes before serving.
