Tasting Notes

Produced from nearly 100% estate, biodynamically grown Parellada, Macabeo and Xarel-Lo, this just may be the classiest, best-made brut Cava (though not labeled as such due to the estate's disagreement with who is allowed to call their wine Cava) currently on the market. From their variety of calcareous clay soils, to the careful harvesting and proximity of their gravity-flow winery, both the quality of raw material and oenological know-how are abundant at this terrific estate. There is a very tiny dosage, less than 6g/l, and the overall impression here is of a very mineral, clearly delineated, chiseled sparkling wine that is truly first-rate. When you taste this wine, you will see why some of Spain's best restaurants continue to feature this terrific sparkler.

    This entry level Raventos sparkling wine shows off all the pedigree, investment and improvements which the family has been busy with over the past decade. The fact that this is made from 100% estate, biodynamically grown fruit should tell you about their seriousness of intent (and also clue you in to what a great value it is at under $20!) Always bright, mineral, a touch salty even, this is the perfect aperitive, the kind of wine you can just drink and drink. One of my favorite Spanish producers, and certainly at the top of my list for bubbles, Raventos continues to bring their 'A' game to the table amongst their entire range of sparklers.

    Lovers of dry sparkling rejoice! This Raventos Brut is crafted sans dosage. As a result, the wine emphasizes the natural characteristic of the delicate fruit and the unique ancient marine fossil deposits of the Raventos terroir. Fresh and light, chalky and bone dry, the wine features very fine bubbles and is aged 18 months on the lees.
