stone fruit, green apple, pear, citrus, honeysuckle and ripe apple

"Composed of 50% Xarello, 38% Macabeu, 12% Parellada; a completely dry cava, with no sugar added for sweetening. Produced in the main from the Recaredo estates at La Pedra Blanca (Subirats), Can Rossell de la Serra (Torrelavit) and Cal Mota (Sant Sadurni d'Anoia - Torrelavit); a luminous, fine cava with a bouquet dominated by balsamic and mature fruit tones; lively and fresh with strong citrus notes. This cava reveals the diversity of calcareous soils and microclimates of the Alt Penedès region. Five percent of the base wine is aged in oak barrel for 12 months."
"Effectively, Can Recaredo, as the domaine is known, is a deeply traditional producer of the finest Cavas available in the market. To visit the cellars and observe the process is to return to another time when artisanal, hand-crafted products of the highest quality were the universally accepted standard, the goal that all sought to achieve." -Importer
