Product Description
Details

This exceedingly interesting Spanish sparkling wine comes from a single, unique vineyard located in a privileged place in Penedès. The place is so special that it has been granted its own geographical indication, Vino de la Tierra Conca de l'Anoia.

More specifically, Raventós i Blanc De La Finca was produced from grapes coming solely from Vinya dels Fòssils. As its name suggests, the main feature of the site is a soil full of marine fossils. That fact brings to the wine a distinctive, saline minerality.

This wine is made from a blend of 45% Xarel·lo, 42% Macabeo and 13% Parellada, sorted from 8 plots farmed following biodynamic procedures.

Harvested by hand, the grapes were gently crushed and fermented in stainless steel tanks. Then the blend was made, after which this Brut Nature Gran Reserva sparkling wine was bottled in order to complete secondary fermentation.

Finally, Raventós i Blanc De La Finca 2017  was aged for a minimum of 3 years in the cellar.

Interestingly, the first vintage of this organic sparkling wine was the last one crafted by Mr. Josep Maria Raventós i Blanc, the founder of the winery, before his demise.

Additional Information
Appearance

The sparkling wine Raventós i Blanc De La Finca has a very bright, clean, pale yellow colour with some greyish glints.

Nose

Elegant and well-defined, this blend of Macabeo, Xarel·lo and Parellada conveys aromas of white fruit, peaches and apricots, with suggestions of aromatic herbs, white flowers, pastry, dry fruit and garrigue.

Palate

Precise, crisp and textured, this sparkler of the Raventós i Blanc winery has some creamy, tiny bubbles and a sensational acidity. Complex notes of green almonds, citrus peel, lime, hazelnuts and Mediterranean underbrush, with a salty touch. Long, slightly bitter finish.

Our personal opinion

After drinking the enticing Raventós i Blanc de la Finca Brut 2017, you might want to reserve some bottles for the next years to witness its growth.
