Raventós i Blanc, 'Cuvée Manuel Raventós'
Manuel Raventós' personal selection of the best wines of the vintage.
Manuel Raventós is the personal selection Manuel Raventós makes of the best wines of the vintage. It is his personal coupage. A signature sparkling wine. For lovers of fresh wines with acidity, structure and volume, tense on the palate, with fine bubbles and aromas of toast and butter. A golden color. A sparkling wine that, due to its exceptional character, is only bottled in the most exceptional vintages. It is then aged for 6 years on lees.
In 2015, Manuel wanted to find more voluminous wines, returning to previous vintages for inspiration, and decided to use Xarel·lo alongside Macabeu.
The grapes for the Cuvée Manuel Raventós are farmed using biodynamic viticulture. The vineyards utilize spontaneous plant cover, which fosters biodiversity, fertility and life in the soil. They apply manure that comes from animals that live on the estate, which is composted during the winter. The grapes are hand harvested, and undergo a first fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats, separating varieties and soil types, blending, and a second fermentation in the bottle. The wine is aged for a minimum of 72 months with the lees in bottle. The disgorgement date will always appear on the label.
