Raventos I Blanc Rose 2011

Raventos I Blanc Rose 2011

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.

2009: 93 Points - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate: "The outstanding 2009 De Nit (rose) has an almost hypnotic, perfect pale hue that is worth the price alone! A blend of classic Cava varieties with 5% Monastrell, it is sourced from 30- to 40-year-old vines from the estate. The nose is very subtle and very pretty with traces of rosewater, fish scale and Morello cherries, all beautifully defined and drawing you in. The palate is crisp and tense on the entry: a minimalist rose cave that is based on freshness and poise rather than delivering fruit intensity. It is a delicate, very pretty, harmonious Cava rose that is sensual and alluring. Who needs Champagne when Cava can be as good as this? Drink now-2015+ "

2009: 92 Points - Josh Raynolds, Steve Tanzer's International Wine Cellars: " Pale salmon-skin color, with a fine bead. Delicate, precise aromas of strawberry, redcurrant, spicecake and jasmine. Light-bodied and focused, offering spicy red berry and citrus flavors and an undercurrent of tangy minerality. More graceful than most pink Cavas-and more than a few rose Champagnes Finishes with impressive clarity and mineral-driven persistence. "

2009: 92 Points - Michael Schachner, Wine Enthusiast: "This has a pretty light color, with dry raspberry and citrus scents. The palate is pure and elegant, with tangerine, grapefruit and nectarine flavors. This finishes longer than most, with poise and grace."
