2016 Raventós i Blanc ‘De La Finca, Vinya del Fóssils’ Penedes
Winemaker Notes: De la Finca sparkling wine is made with grapes from our oldest vines, planted using the gobelet system in 1964 in the Vinya dels Fòssils.
De La Finca is perhaps the best representation of the estate - a pure, expression of the marine mineral soils with no dosage. On the nose, it has citrus zest aromas with notes of white flowers and ginger. Super focused on the palate with Meyer lemon, pear and bitter tonic flavors. A long, impressive finish that is nervy and energetic, leaving fresh, subtle herbal notes behind.
Blend: 60% Xarel.lo, 30% Macabeo, 10% Parellada
Wine Enthusiast - "Dry elegance defines the nose, with aromas of white mushroom, apple, pear and spent yeast blending well. A lightly citric and minerally palate plays up freshness, while this tastes of just-ripe nectarine and tangerine. A steady citric finish is tangy and edgy."
