2014 Raventos i Blanc "de la Finca" Gran Reserva Conca del Riu Anoia

SKU #1381893 92 points Wine & Spirits

 De la Finca is a single block at Vinya dels Fòssils, a site rich in chalk that gives a strong minerality to this blend of xarello (50 percent), macabeo (40 percent) and parellada. This traditional-method sparkler is bottled without dosage, keeping it edgy in acidity, with notes of lime and a crystalline sensation in its flavors of white fruit. The structure is vertical, tight rather than volumptuous, ideal with an Indian fish curry.  (8/2017)

91 points Decanter

 Made from grapes sourced from the 'Vinya dels Fòssils' vineyard, it is no surprise this wine reveals a distinct mineral note. There is a core of intense limey freshness on the palate with a pleasant bitter character to the citrus fruit, accented by a firm saline note. The rush of acidity is exciting and ensures a tight structure. Will certainly reward further patience as it starts to show its autolytic side. (SW)  (10/2017)

91 points Wine Enthusiast

 Raventós I Blanc is one of Spain's best producers of sparkling wines, although theirs are no longer classified as Cava. This has aromas of briny apple and yeasty vanilla setting up a stony palate with narrowing acidity. Flavors of lemon and orange peel are from the brut nature school. It feels chalky and citrusy on a lean, long finish. (MS)  (5/2018)

K&L Notes

Produced from six distinctive parcels on the Raventos property, this gran reserva bottling from Raventos is one of our very best sparkling wines in stock. Aromas of subtle toast, apple and citrus lead to a very bright palate, focused and with terrific energetic drive. The wine spends four years on the lees which add complexity, but given the quality of the raw material here there is still a very bright and youthful quality to this wine.
