Description

Fresh, citrus nose with a hint of delicate Mediterranean herbs. The palate is elegant and well-balanced, with a full mouthfeel and a delicious, persistent finish.

Each variety was handpicked and then vinified separately, starting with the grapes being pressed in a pneumatic press at low pressure. The juice was settled at cool temperatures prior to undergoing fermentation in stainless-steel tanks using native yeasts. The wine was aged on the lees for 18 months with no malolactic fermentation allowed.

Raventós i Blanc is owned by one of Spain’s most historic winemaking families, whose viticultural tradition dates back to 1497. Josep Raventós Fatjó produced Spain’s first traditional method sparkling wine in 1872 from estate-grown Xarel·lo and his descendant, Josep Maria Raventós i Blanc, went on to become a key figure in Spanish wine.
