Silencis 2009, made with 100% Xarel·lo grapes, is a local, modern wine. It offers earthy but mature notes, and a pleasant touch of aniseed which brings out the subtlety of a Xarel·lo which has been very well cared for on the vine. The palate is dynamic and potent. A compact but fat wine which evidences efforts to achieve quality.”

In Time Out magazine, an article in the Crítica column entitled “Party on!” highlights the high note on which Manuel Raventós cava seems to be beginning 2010, with top ratings in the national guides. “Its long ageing for seven years makes it a wine with lots of body, able to accompany all the complexity of a good meal. Its colour, deep and golden, with compact bubbles, begs for it to be served in a tulip glass. The notes of honey and lemon, of toasted cereals, give it a special pedigree. Raventós i Blanc have deep roots in the history of cava in Sant Sadurní d’Anoia. The saltiness of this cava makes it special and different: it has the character of tradition and the originality of a good combination of old vines and judicious winemaking. Ferran Centelles, sommelier at ElBulli says of it, “The memory of it is infinite”,  and “Just opening a bottle of Manuel Raventós 2002 makes it a party.”
