“Turó d’en Mota is fruit of nature, nurtured by people who observe and respect its laws.”
Turó d’en Mota de Recaredo represents the elegance of simplicity: a unique vineyard, a single grape variety, one vintage and a limited production.
It is a terroir wine in the broadest sense; in other words, the expression of an area of very calcareous land with a Mediterranean microclimate, Xarel·lo grapes and a viticulture of observation rather than intervention.
A long and careful ageing of at least 120 months in contact with the lees obtains the most subtle and complex nuances of the expression of time.
The Turó d’en Mota vineyard, which was planted in 1940 and trained traditionally, is property of Recaredo.
It is located in the northwestern corner of the municipality of Sant Sadurní d’Anoia, in the county of Alt Penedès (Barcelona), on the north side of a hill named Turó d’en Mota, from which it gets its name.
The land is extremely calcareous and has a silty loam structure (a balance of sand, silt and clay) with the presence of calcareous nodules.
