The De Nit blends the local white grape varieties with Monastrell, resulting in a lovely pale pink sparkling rosé. Aromas of citrus, white fruit and hints of fennel follow through to the palate which has an elegant mousse and lifted, long finish.
The grapes were brought into the winery using gravity and pressed using the pnuematic press at low pressure.The Macabeu and Parellada were pressed and vinified separately and the Monastrell and Xarel·lo were pressed together. 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.
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.
