2015 Raventós i Blanc ‘De La Finca, Vinya del Fóssils’ 1.5L
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.
Antonio Galloni - "Brilliant straw-yellow. Lemon zest, quinine, pungent flowers and ginger on the incisive, mineral-accented nose. Chewy in texture, sharply focused and dry, showing impressive clarity to its sappy pear, Meyer lemon and bitter quinine flavors, which deepen slowly on the back half. Finishes impressively long, mineral and energetic, leaving subtle herb and floral notes behind."
Robert Parker - "The smoky 2015 De la Finca, which has the subtitle "Vinya dels Fòssils" on the label, was inspired by the original blend of this wine that was created by Pepe Raventós’s grandfather, who founded the winery. It comes from poor limestone soils that tend to produce more austere wines. It has more influence from the contact with the lees in bottle (it's disgorged some three years after the harvest) but still keeping its youth. There are Mediterranean notes of fennel and underbrush and a saline core that gives it an electric palate. 2015 was very dry and warm, and the wines are a little riper, with more integrated acidity.
