Turó d’en Mota
Historical harvest that outlines a long aging wine of intense and vibrant character. An extremely water-borne July contrasts with the low rainfall collected throughout the year. A fact that, accompanied by a very advanced harvest, makes the 2001 vintage one of the most atypical and unique crops in the history of Turó d’en Mota.

A very gastronomic wine that makes you salivate. It cries for food. Only 2,770 bottles were produced. Up there with the best sparkling wines of the world. Bravo! To me this is the best Turo d’en Mota yet!
It is a perfect expression of the land it grows on, and you can clearly smell and taste the calcareous soil, the rosemary, thyme and fennel growing on the hill just next to the vineyard, and even though it is aged for over ten years, it is still fresh and vibrant
LOCATION AND GEOLOGY OF THE WINEYARD
- The vineyard of Turó d’en Mota has 0.97 ha with north and northeast exposure. Only in the extraordinary harvests, such as 2006, is a part of the vineyard of 0.55 ha with Southeast exposure.
- Grounds of limestone texture (balance of sand, slime and clay) and very calcareous nature. They are treated with deep and well drained soils, with moderate water storage capacity.
- Soils very evolved due to the presence of a calcium horizon with important accumulations of carbonates in the form of nodules, that is, stones formed from concentrations of lime. They have an active limestone of 14%, which makes them extremely calcareous soils.
- Organic matter of 1.5% (very low) and soil pH of 8.5 (very basic).
