ABV: 12% Vol: 75cl
Ripe Apple, Pear with hints of Brioche
Spain’s answer to Champagne, Cava is a prestigious fizz without the heavy price tag!! And Torello is one of the finest. With floral and white fruit aromas such as apple and pear, brioche and anise. It is a whirlwind of flavour with a velvety texture and fine yet persistent bubbles.

The Nerdy Bits...
"The Torello family has a long, rich history, for the Can Martí estate has been under its ownership since the end of the 14th century. The strikingly liveried cuvée, made from Macabeo, Parellada and Xarel-lo, is forward but elegant in style with an attractive intensity of zingy, ripe apple fruit."

Grapes are harvested by hand and pressed separately at cool temperatures. Torelló have recently incorporated a new technology into the press system which protects the must from oxidation. Fermentation occurs with indigenous yeast. Second fermentation in the bottle and at least 24 months aging in stacks.
