The Monastrell, providing color (without sacrificing freshness) is from the lower terraces of the El Serral hillside.

PRESS | 92+ WA "The very pale salmon/onion-skin colored 2020 De Nit is a blend of 44% Xarel.lo, 39% Macabeo, 12% Parellada and 5% Monastrell, which is closer to a white. It has energy, good ripeness and some natural concentration from the vintage, with weight and clout keeping the balance and freshness, and some very small bubbles after no less than 18 months in bottle with lees. All the wines are very expressive; they have bubbles that provide texture and lift the wine up. This is serious, dry but adjusted to different levels depending on the year, a bit more complex than the Blanc de Blancs." - Luis Gutierrez

PRESS | 92 W&S "Lovely structural integration gives this a soft, cushioned feel. There’s a coppery hint to the pink color and the white-peach scents. The acidity and leesiness are finely integrated, giving a lasting sense of smoke, or stone on stone flintiness."

TASTING NOTES | A pale, subdued and elegant pink color with clean, pure and almost crystalline aromas of light citrus, red flowers, white fruit, and a touch of cassis. The clean nose evolves with a smooth, voluminous and fruity texture, pleasant freshness and fine bubbles. Driven by a very good balance, with low dosage (Extra Brut).
