Raventos I Blanc Cava Brut L'Hereu 2012

Raventos I Blanc Cava Brut L'Hereu 2012

750ML      
Sku: P11560

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.

The N.V. L’Hereu de Raventos I Blanc was produced by the methode champenoise, unusual for such an inexpensive bubbly. A blend of Macabeo, Xarello, and Parellada, it exhibits an attractive mousse and refreshing crisp acidity on the palate. Balanced, tasty, and with good length, this is a great value in Cava. ”
Talking about the wines, let’s start with the 2011 L’Hereu Brut, a blend of Macabeo, Xarello and Parellada from their own vineyards and some grapes sourced from growers located in the Anoia valley in Penedes, which aged for 18 months. All bottles have the disgorgement date on the back label, so they are not all the same in bottle with 8.5 grams of residual sugar. It is pale yellow-colored with fresh notes of apple and yeasts, some toasted bread with a sharp palate with high acidity, clean and refreshing, powerful yet elegant, with a citric finish. Drink now.

Technical notes
Product information A blend of 60% Macabeo, 20% Xarel-lo and 20% Parellada from 100% estate-bottled fruit, the Brut LHereu 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. Producer information From 1984 onwards my father and I worked together to create some new cellars in the centre of our property. We created a wine and a top quality cava exclusively from our grapes. We had the vineyards, the experience and the obsession. We needed everything else. So, in 1986 our cellars were built. My father and I created Raventos i Blanc to be the brand of reference among prestige cavas, starting from top quality pioneering wines, with distinctive character. Our symbol, the old Family Oak, presides over our cellars and our brand. It is the faithful witness to a commitment to a land and faith in ideas that have been perfected over more than 500 years.
