Raventos I Blanc Cava Brut L'Hereu 2009

Raventos I Blanc Cava Brut L'Hereu 2009

750ML    
Sku: 050494

L’Hereu pays tribute to our ancestors, all the heirs of the Raventós i Blanc estate who have tended this land, generation after generation, since 1497. This cava is our "premier” – a sampler that shows how we like to work. The grapes are harvested by hand and rapidly delivered to the winery, where they are processed via a gravity flow system. At each stage of the production process the atmosphere is controlled by dry ice. Assemblage is followed by bottle fermentation and ageing for at least 15 months in the neck-down position.

Rating
2009: 90 Points - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate: " The 2009 Reserva Brut is a blend of classic Cava varieties (40% Macabeu, 40% Xarello and 20% Parellada) from 20- to 40-year-old vines in the 90-hectare Serral Vineyard on the Raventos I Blanc Estate. It has a vibrant bouquet of peach and lemon peel complemented by a subtle, crushed stone aroma. The palate is crisp and defined on the entry, with fine poise and build in the mouth. It leads harmoniously towards a succinct rosewater and white peach finish that is fresh and tense. Drink now-2017. "


Technical notes
Wine Information: A blend of 60% Macabeo, 20% Xarel-lo and 20% Parellada from 100% estate-bottled fruit, the Brut “L’Hereu” from Raventos is simply one of the best examples of Cava available at this (or any) price point! The grapes are harvested by hand and rapidly delivered to the winery, where they are processed via a gravity flow system. At each stage of the production process the atmosphere is controlled by dry ice. Assemblage is followed by bottle fermentation and ageing for at least 15 months in the neck-down position.
