Details
"The 2013 Intens Rosat Brut Nature Gran Reserva is the one sparkling rose from Recaredo, and it's an atypical one, as the pink color is very intense (as mentioned in the wine's name). The blend is also atypical: 51% Monastrell, 36% Pinot Noir and 13% Garnacha, and the wine aged in contact with the lees in bottle for 43 months (three and a half years). This is the last vintage with Pinot Noir; the following vintages will be different, even more Mediterranean. They now do less maceration than in the beginning, and it feels subtler, even if it's still intense (pun intended). But they want to stay away from the pale roses because they don't think it's the character of their zone. It has a Cava nose with more red fruit in the palate, some bitterness in the finish and very apt to go with food. It's a wine with strong character, even if it's their youngest Cava, a little more exuberant than its siblings." 91 points Luis Gutierrez Wine Advocate

Everything is hand done, including the disgorging at this outstanding winery in Penedes. Recaredo also farms biodynamically.
