Raventós i Blanc
2010 Manuel Raventos
A personal selection by Manuel Raventós of the best wines of the vintage.
70% Xarel.lo, 20% Macabeu & 10% Parellada
Xarel.lo from El Clos, a north facing plot with the coolest and dampest microclimate on the estate, creating very long ripening cycles giving structured wines with excellent natural acidity. Parellada from La Creueta, the sandy soils giving concen-trated wines. Macabeu from La Vinya dels Fòssils, freshness and minerality from this lowest lying plot.
Made in the traditional method. Vinification is done separately by variety and soil type in stainless steel tanks followed by blending and secondary fermentation in the bottle, aged for a minimum of 6 years. Zero Dosage.

“The nose is very balsamic, somehow Mediterranean, a little minty, the one that to me shows the origin more faithfully. Of the three vintages I tasted together, this is the more generous wine, always within the serious and somehow austere style. None of the wines here are are voluptuous, they are more about the soils than fruit. It ends mineral, tasty and long. Great wine. ” - Luis Gutierrez
