To visit Spain and especially Sant Sadurni d`Anoia is always nice and very rewarding.

One of the great producers are Cava Recaredo and the great winemaker Ton Mata Moliner who is passionate about the product that he makes.

Recaredo is all Biodynamic and makes only cavas without dosage, all bone dry that shows great complexity and depth from the terroir.

Brut nature and brut de brut are all amazing wines that is some of the best produced cavas and you can buy them online at

An great pleasure was also to meet his father who have so much history to tell and who is responsible for most of the plantings they use right now and also taste some barrel samples of Xarello that will be used for some experiments.

Ton is the third generation of this house that was started by his grandfather in 1924 and who was a well known football player in the team Espaniol but even more as an true artist when it comes to disgorgement.

The house of Recardero does all of the remuage in racks by hand and all the vinification, aging and bottling is made in the house and all the wines undergo second fermentation with cork stoppers witch is very unusual.

The house prestigious Cava is the one that they call TURO D`EN MOTA that is produced in very limited quantity with single grape variety (xarello) that was planted in 1940 of just 0,97 Hectares.

The 2002 that I tasted was disgorged on the spot by Jose and served in cellar temperature.

After spending 120 months on lees it shoved great complexity and very creamy texture, this must be one of the most special cavas I have ever tasted, thanks Ton for letting me try this one.

This week Recardero will be in Stockholm and also in Malmö on Thursday so take the time and go to this special tastings that he will have here. contact Invinitum regarding this tastings.
