Agustí Torelló Mata - KRIPTA - Macabeo: 45%,Xarel.lo: 20%,Parellad: 35%. Penedes
Kripta, aged 60 months in bottle in contact with yeasts is a blend of the classical Cava grapes, Macabeo, Xarello and Parellada. The color is a bright-yellow, with plenty of toasty bread, brioche, yeast and smoke aromas, with fennel and aniseed notes intermixed with white fruit and sweet spice aromas. The palate has clean, pungent, delineated, sharp citric acidity, good integration and balance and a long aftertaste. A Cava for food and pretty good value.

- BEST CAVA IN THE WORLD
In the heart of el Penedes, Agustí Torelló creates KRIPTA, the cava that has been described by Michel Bettane, the most influential wine critic in France, as a sparkling wine comparable to the very best Champagnes: “Wonderful and delicate walnut aromas, refined texture and bubbles, very seducing finish. The perfection of cava or almost, and a wine that shall surprise many people.” He recently gave it 18 points over 20, the highest for that tasting. He included KRIPTA in his book of THE BEST 100 WINES OF THE WORLD, along with 4 more sparkling wines (all from Champagne), making KRIPTA A TOP 5 BEST SPARKLING IN THE WORLD!
