2017 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
Vinous - "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."
