Raventos i Blanc De Nit 2015 Sparkling Rosé
“Looking for colour, I found from the western part of the hill, which provides complexity without losing
freshness” Pepe Raventós
THE WINERY: The personality and the style of our sparkling wines are determined by our soil, by the native varieties and by the biodynamic winemaking, which favours the biodiversity, energy and life of the estate as much as possible. It is our soils of marine origin that give our wines most typicity, providing them with saline, mineral notes that make our sparkling wines different from those produced on other terroirs throughout the world. Biodynamic and Organic.
REGION: Our dream is for the Raventós i Blanc wines to have their own name: Conca del Riu Anoia, the name of a small geographical area, centred around the River Anoia Basin, between the Catalan Pre-Coastal and Coastal Ranges. Strict winegrowing requirements that help us pass on and learn more about our viticulture tradition, the strength of our land, the typicity of our grapes and the characteristics of our soils. And the greatest of care in the production of our wines using the traditional method. Cava, Spain.
BLEND: ‘De Nit’ is a blend of 42% Macabeo, 37% Xarel.lo and 14% Parrellada with the addition of 7% Monastrell for complexity and its pale pink color. All grapes come from estate-owned, biodynamically-farmed vineyards in the Anoia River valley. The primary fermentation is in stainless steel with the secondary fermentation in bottle. It is aged for at least 18 months on the lees before release. ‘De Nit’ means ‘Of the Night’ in Catalan.
STYLE/TASTING NOTES: A creamy, floral nose leads to crisp, elegant and refreshing palate of berry fruit. A long and vibrant finish invites the next sip.
FOOD PAIRING: A wonderful aperitif, this wine is incredibly light in color with elegant, fine-textured bubbles. It pairs well with a variety of lighter fare as it has minimal sweetness and excellent acidity. Try with oysters or fried chicken.
