Sparkling wine made in the traditional method from Spain, Conca Del Riu Anoia.
‘’De La Finca’’ is a Blend from the varieties Xarel·lo 54%, Macabeu 30% and Parellada 16%. The grapes come from 9 plots, which are located north and north-east on the steep slopes of the Serral mountain.
The grapevines thrive on chalky and nutrient-poor soils. Viticulture is based on ecological and biodynamic principles. Natural manure is added to the vines in winter. The vines are cut short. To prevent disease, the grapes are constantly checked. In addition, the grapes are never in direct sunlight to prevent burns.
As soon as the grapes arrive at the winery, they are pressed slowly and with little pressure. This is followed by a static primary clarification at low temperatures, a first fermentation in stainless steel tanks and a second fermentation in the bottle for at least 3 years.
Raventós i Blanc de la Finca perfectly represents the interplay between soil, microclimate, plants, animals and people, all of which are important in the production of the Conca Del Riu Anoia.
Lemon zest, quinine, pungent flowers and ginger on the incisive, mineral-accented nose.
Chewy in texture, sharply focused and dry, showing impressive clarity to its sappy pear, Meyer lemon and bitter quinine flavors, which deepen slowly on the back half. Finishes impressively. Long, mineral and energetic, leaving subtle herb and floral notes behind.
