Gran Torelló Brut Nature is a sparkling wine produced by the Torelló winery in the municipality of Gelida (Barcelona), Corpinnat.
Torelló is a family winery that dates back to 1951, when Francesc Torelló i Casanovas decided to redirect the family’s farming activities and start producing bottled wines and sparkling wines.
The Torelló family has a fabulous 135 hectare estate of medieval origin (1395), with olive trees and vineyards, where they have been cultivating native and foreign varieties for several years. They produce all their wines and sparkling wines with thoroughness and passion, demonstrating all the character and personality of the area where they originate.
The Can Martí estate has chalky-clay soils and a typically Mediterranean climate, with an average annual temperature of 16ºC, an average rainfall of 460 mm/year and rainfalls concentrated in spring and autumn.
Gran Torelló Brut Nature is a sparkling wine made with Macabeo, Xarel·lo and Parellada grapes from their own vineyards located in the Can Martí estate’s Paraje Calificado.
Harvesting is carried out manually, with the grapes being selected in the vineyard. Once they arrive at the winery, the grapes are destemmed and softly pressed. The must obtained is fermented in stainless steel tanks with local yeasts at a controlled temperature. Each variety is vinified separately, and once the coupage is made it stabilizes and clarifies naturally in concrete tanks. With this wine the tirage for the second fermentation is performed in the bottle, where it will be aged stacked for a minimum of 60 months. After this time, after being stirred by hand to clarify, the disgorgement is performed without adding sugar.
