Agusti Torello Mata Brut Reserva 2008 Sparkling White Wine Tasting Notes:
The 2008 Agusti Torello Mata Brut Nature Gran Reserva is a blend of classic Cava varieties with vanilla and roasted walnut aromas on the nose, later joined by a touch of lanolin. The palate is crisp and lively on the entry. This is a taut Cava with a strong citric thread that binds everything together. As such, I would afford it twelve months in bottle. Drink 2013-2016.
Although Agusti Torello was founded in 1950, this estate sold its Cava to other producers for twenty or thirty years before taking the plunge and bottling themselves. Their philosophy and tagline is: “Cava with soul,” something sceptics might smirk at, at least until they taste them. All fruit is sourced from Penedes from organically cultivated vines and they concentrate upon Reserva and Gran Reserva only.
