The Challenge of Creation

 ‘2003 Turó d’en Mota is a terroir wine moulded by nature’s implacable desires. This vintage symbolises the challenge of creation: the authenticity of the landscape taken to the limit by a sweltering summer that finally gives way to just the right amount of rain that falls when it’s needed, at the end of August.

Great challenges forge great characters. That’s why 2003 is a historic vintage that has yielded a long-aged wine with an intense, vibrant character, marked by an indomitable spirit that gradually succumbs to balance, elegance and complexity… Because time calms, reassures and brings wisdom.’

2003 Turó d’en Mota is a superb effort, a real triumph over the conditions of the vintage. Fine bakery aromas, faintly smoky, perfumed with some balsamic aromas of camphor and petrol, but no traces of heat anywhere. The wine was disgorged after more than 10 years in contact with the lees and no matter how elegant this is, it has the clear signature of the place and wouldn’t be mistaken for Champagne. It’s clearly a very elegant Cava, but showing its rustic side, the character of the place where the pure Xarello grows on the old vines planted on very chalky soils. Really lovely, tasty Cava, superb, not only in the context of the vintage, but also in the context of all sparkling wines in the world! 3,378 bottles produced.’
