Drink now through to 2022. Serve well chilled.

Recaredo has been at the forefront of the Cava revolution in recent years, proving to the world that this traditional method sparkling wine can easily rival its famous Champagne cousins. At the heart of Recaredo’s success is an insistence on respect for the natural environment and a lengthy ageing period. The estate uses biodynamic practices in the vineyard and only makes vintage Cavas that all spend at least 30 months maturing with the lees in their traditional cellars.

The Terrers is composed of the three indigenous varieties typically used for Cava: Xarel-lo, Macabeu and a touch of Parellada. The grapes are sourced from Recaredo’s own vineyards in the Bitlles Valley Highlands where the chalky soils help to create elegant, long-lived Cavas with terrific freshness. After the first fermentation has been completed, the bottles spend at least 60 months in the cellar before disgorging by hand and release to the market.

This unrushed approach to winemaking creates an incredibly complex Cava that boast tiny, delicate bubbles, a well-rounded, full body, and a smooth, creamy mousse. On the nose there are layers of ripe white peaches, lemon zest, brioche and a crisp minerality which carry through onto the palate. Recaredo do not add any sugar to their Cavas after disgorgement so the fresh, bone dry character of the Terrers makes this perfect to serve as an aperitif or alongside a generous platter of fruits de mer.
