Torello Special Edition Brut Sparkling
Torello
Spain - Catalunya - Corpinnat

The estate soils have been formed from sediments from the Garraf Massis, deposited thousands of years ago. One of the most characteristic features of the estate’s soils is the presence of accumulations of calcium carbonate. The movement of water through the soil dissolves the carbonates and takes them to a certain depth. The continuous repetition of this process has ended up producing the accumulation of these deposits. When these become massive, after thousands of years, they bind together and form a hard stratum called a petrocalcic horizon. This hard stratum limits the availbility of water to the vine and the production, but is a factor that gives the grape quality

The wine offers a straw yellow color, clean, transparent, fine, and persistent bubbles with a rosary formation. In the nose fresh pear aromas stand out along with delicious notes of pastry cream, white flowers, and candied fruits. On the palate, good balance and acidity. Powerful and flavorful with white flowers and notes of brioche, almond and great length.

Vinification
Once all the grapes have passed over the sorting table, we press each variety separately, softly, making use of just the first pressing, the “mosto flor” (free run juice). We work with Inertys technology into our presses, which protects the must from oxidations during the grape-pressing phase. Second fermentation in bottle.
Ageing: More than 36 months in bottle. Every year there is poignettage (shaking the bottle), which causes the yeasts to mix again with the wine. In this way the sparkling wine is enriched in aromas and flavors.
