Their “premier” wine, by the company’s own admission and a fine example of their work. Macabeo is the primary grape here, but the complexity comes from using a blend of varieties and the different soil compositions. Harvested manually and quickly transferred to the winery, the grapes are fed in by gravity. At each stage of the wine-making process, the atmosphere is controlled by using dry ice.
A fruity Cava (lemon and apple), smooth, unblemished, with well-balanced acidity. Totally refreshing, with an abundance of fine bubbles.
A second fermentation occurs in bottle, followed by a minimum ageing period of 15 months lying in a horizontal position.

clean and refreshing blend that would be ideal for a party or summer gathering. No dosage but not overly dry. Recommended

Raventós i Blanc
Raventós i Blanc is virtually a synonym of traditional and family-run winemaking. The farm where their wines are made has belonged to the Raventós family since 1497. Twenty-one generations have lived and worked here among spectacular vineyards and woodland, located in Sant Sadurní d'Anoia, the sparkling wine capital of Catalonia. The family keep records certifying that they were already making wine here for home consumption and selling must to other winemakers...
