Raventos i Blanc Conca Del Riu Anoia Brut Blanc de Blancs 2017, Catalunya, Spain

Blanc de Blancs is a sparkling wine marked by the typicity of its place of origin, the Vinya del Llac, a vineyard over 40 years old, which allows for a structured, fresh and complex sparkling wine. 2017 vintage – 40% Xarel-lo, 32% Macabeo, 28% Parellada. The grapes enter the winery by gravity. At each stage, the atmosphere is controlled by dry ice. Slow pressing at low pressures. Static sedimentation at low temperatures. First fermentation in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature. Assemblage and second fermentation in the bottle with a minimum ageing period of 18 months in a horizontal position. Disgorging date stated on the back label. Soils: The soils on the estate are calcareous and date back to the oldest period of the Penedès depression some 16 million years ago. The large number of marine fossils that characterize the structure and composition of these soils are the main source of the typical salinity and minerality of the wines from our estate.
