Prosecco Superiore Valdobbiadene DOCG 
Col Credas Rive di Farra di Soligo 2013, Adriano Adami
Enkel munn, nøytral og kjedelig. Ingen typisk duft av blomster. En prosecco som har en litt bedre struktur, men ikke så sjarmerende. Men vinklubben mangler endel referanse på Prosecco...
Dette skal være et trinn opp fra standard Prosecco. Kr. 199,- på bestillingsutvalget.  81 poeng.

Prosecco kan lages på begge måter, både som Charmat og som i tradisjonell Champenois. Førstnevnte bidrar såklart til at prisen på Prosecco er lav.

Unlike Champagne, its main commercial competitor, Prosecco usually is produced using the Charmat-Martinotti method, in which the secondary fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks,[18] making the wine less expensive to produce. The lrules for the DOCG Prosecco Valdobbiadene also allow the use of the Metodo Classico: secondary fermentation in the bottle.

The Adriano Adami family has been making prosecco for almost 90 years in the town of Vidor, in the hamlet of Colbertaldo. The Adami wines were first noted in 1933.
The DOCG designation indicates that the wine is made from grapes grown in the original zone in the northern end of the Veneto region, near Valdobbiadene and Conegliano (close to Treviso). It also identifies the subzone, Rive di Farra di Soligo, indicating Made with 100 percent Glera grape, Col Credas references Credazzo, a hilly area in Farra di Soligo, where soils are identified by rich deposits of clay (or creda in the local dialect); Col Credas is one of the Rive – steep hillslope vineyards that are south and southeast facing.
The vinification process requires a light pressing with a bladder press, with gravity settling the must and fermentation taking place at a controlled temperature. The maturation on the fine lees takes place in steel tanks for 3 months with a second fermentation done by Metodo Italiano or Charmat in steel pressurized tanks (autoclave) to make it sparkling.

Agusti Torfilo Mata Gran Reserva Barrica 2009
Noe autolyse og champagneassosiasjon, spiss, moden frukt, syre og det virker som det er for spinkel frukt til et fatbruk som denne har fått. Uharmonisk og rar. Mindre enn 1g/l sukker. 80 poeng.

Cava kan bare lages på en måte, som i tradisjonell Champenois. 

The Agustí Torelló Mata winery was founded in 1959 and with only two generations of winemakers this winery has already well-renowned for their high quality sparkling wines. All of the cavas by this winery are either Reserve cavas or Grand Reserve cavas. Agustí came from a family of winemakers and along with his own creative imagination as a musician; Agustí began a very precise production of cava. This was a family project and Agustí, together with his sister Carmen Sibill and her four children, this family has been crafting their brilliant cavas in Sant Sadurní d´Anoia inside of Alt Penedès, Spain.
With a very unique personality and numerous international awards, the cavas and wines from Agustí Torelló have become a grand success. All of this winery´s products that are crafted from the three classic grape varietals of the Cava D. O. in Spain—Macabeo, Xarel-lo, and Parellada—are cultivated from very old grapevines, in the respect of the grand tradition and terroir in this region. The cavas by the Agustí Torelló Mata winery are characterized by their grand elegance and marked complexity. This winery reflects their grand respect for the ageing time of their cavas and this is clear as each and every bottle provides information about its age and these bottles are also individually marked with their unique date of disgorgement.  
One of the best successes and most well-known cavas of the Bodegas Agustí Torelló Mata winery in Penedès, is their Kripta de Agustí Torelló cava. This vintage of cava started in 1979 with its unique bottle that is reminiscent of a beautiful and ancient Roman amphora. The beautiful bottle also features artwork from Rafael Barolozzi. Furthermore, this cava presents a maximum expression of its three native grape varietals: Macabeo, Xarel-lo, and Parellada.
The white wines by the Agustí Torelló Mata winery are labeled as Colecció Terres wines. These white wines are crafted from the three different grape varietals Subirà Parent, Xarel·lo, and Macabeo. These grapes are cultivated at three different vineyards, each of which featuring a different terroir in very different regions of Spain (Cordillera Prelitoral, Depresión del Penedès, and Cordillera Litoral, respectively). To highlight the unique character and terroir of these wines, each of their labels provides information about the wine´s terroir.
The latest big news from the Agustí Torelló Mata winery is their Sólid vintage of cava. This is a pure expression of what cava should be with texture that perfectly integrates this cava´s effervescence. This grand cava was realized with the union between this winery and the restaurant Celler de Can Roca, which received 3 Michelin stars and was named the best restaurant in the world in 2013.  

Champagne Agrapart Minèral Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs 2008
      Tydelig champagne med nedfallsfrukt av epler og autolyse. Bør lagres. Men soliditeten til år-        gangen kommer kanskje ikke helt tydelig fram ?  Kan kjøpes på Aker Brygge og bør testes ut igjen. 
                                                                            90 poeng.
