2007 Raventos i Blanc "L'Hereu de Nit" Brut Reserva Rosé Cava

SKU #1062060

Raventos i Blanc was founded in 1986 by Josep-Maria Raventos, a member of the Codorníu family who wished to create a small, quality-oriented winery that would stand apart from the large co-ops in the area. Today they own about 300 acres of vineyards (with a high percentage of Chalk in the soil, like Champagne) planted mostly to local varieties such as Macabeo (Viura), Xarel-lo and Parellada. All three of these grapes, as well as 15% Monastrell, are found in this delicate, beautiful rosé bottling. Raventos i Blanc is the only Cava producer to estate grow and estate bottle all of their Cavas. The grapes are biodynamically farmed and certified by the Catalan Integrated Production Council (CCPI). The Cavas are found on such 3 star Michelin restaurants as El Bulli and Arzak, and represent the highest quality in Cava and an incredible value in sparkling wine.

Very pale salmon color with copper hue, and a fine bead with fresh baked bread, strawberry, and red currant with slight floral and spice notes. Refined mouth feel with a soft creamy mousse. Nicely balanced with some complexity, and Raspberry, red currant, and soft minerals flavors. Medium finish. Very enjoyable! I would purchase again and this is a very good value, especially for a Rose sparkler!
