Raventós i Blanc De la Finca, 6 Bottle Case 75cl
Equivalent Bottle Price £24.00
The De la Finca is a complex, saline wine with delicate lemon, aniseed and fennel aromas. The palate is elegant and fresh with mineral notes and fine mousse.
Each variety was vinified separately, starting with the grapes being pressed in a pnuematic press at low pressure. The juice was settled at cool temperatures prior to undergoing fermentation in stainless-steel tanks using native yeasts at temperatures kept between 17 to 21ºC. Fermentation lasted 9-15 days. The wine was then aged on the lees for 30 months. No sugar was added at dosage to preserve the wine's purity of fruit and saline expression.
Raventós i Blanc is owned by one of Spain’s most historic winemaking families with a viticultural tradition dating back to 1497. They have been at the forefront of Cava production since Josep Raventós Fatjó produced Spain’s first traditional method sparkling wine in 1872 from Xarel-lo grown on their estate. Today, Raventós i Blanc is run by Pepe Raventós, who aims to “convey our viticultural traditions, the strength of our land and the characteristics of our soils,” Pepe took the decision to leave the Cava DO in 2012, in order to focus on the estate’s 50 hectares of vines in the more distinctive Conca del Riu Anoia region.
