Raventos I Blanc Cava Brut Rose de Nit 2013

Raventos I Blanc Cava Brut Rose de Nit 2013

750ML      
Sku: 052060

Intriguing like the night, and full of mystery: a rosť body that conceals the soul of a white. Monastrell grapes impart a special complexity and elegance to De Nit, without affecting the rich freshness characteristic of all our cavas. 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.

The 2013 De Nit is a blend of the three classical white grapes from the region, Macabeo, Xarello, Parellada and a pinch (5%) of red Monastrell sourced from the historical Vina de la Plana. The wine had an average of 24 months in contact with the lees (18 for the first disgorgement and up to 30 for the last bottles before they finish the vintage and start with a new one). The color is extremely pale (it could even pass as a Blanc de Noir) and the nose is very similar to the 2013 L’Hereu, perhaps not as fine, with very nice, clean fruit. The palate might have a little more weight, with faint flower notes, very good acidity and a little bit of tannin coupled with acidity that gives it length and persistence and a distinct elegant rusticity. I’m not a great fan of pink sparkling wine in general, but I’m a fan of this one. This is a perfect aperitif wine. 180,000 bottles produced.
