We recommended both the 2013 and 2014 vintages: Presented in a Brut Nature style, these are bold sparklers, with a silky roundness that comes from the 42 months they spent aging on lees. The 2013 has a lively lemon freshness that brightens its rich undertones of mango and papaya. The 2014 is charming in its honeyed texture and its passion fruit flavor. ”

Cupatges magazine recommends De Nit 2007 and Silencis 2009, from Raventós i Blanc. “A clean, pure aroma which gradually reveals citrus aromas recalling white fruit, strawberry and a touch of blackcurrant. This is a dynamic, elegant cava which begs to be tasted to discover its potential and enjoy a texture packed with crispness and sensuality. 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.”

“Xarel·lo in the Penedès stands as the modern local variety in wines which set out to represent the region. This is the slogan of Silencis, a wine which left sceptics of unctuous wines open-mouthed and which proclaims to the four winds the balance and crispness of the new white wines.” In the words of the sommelier at ElBulli, Ferran Centelles, it is “A compact but fat wine which evidences efforts to achieve quality.” This is a wine to listen to in silence and concentrate on what the wine is saying.

Jordi Melendo, en el apartado El Tast, del diario el 3 de Vuit, presenta el vino Silencis 2009, como un vino de alta calidad, que sabe expresar el lugar del que proceden.  “En el trabajo de la viña se aplica el máximo esfuerzo, siguiendo la filosofía de esta bodega, que es aquí donde está el secreto para conseguir vinos de alta calidad y que expresen el lugar del que proceden. Fermentación separada en depósitos de acero inoxidable y crianza sobre las lías en barrica de roble francés. En la cata encontramos un vino de color amarillo paja, brillante. Aromas de fruta madura, entre los que destaca la pera, con un agradable toque de anís que nos acerca a la sutilidad del xarel·lo. En boca, es potente, sabroso, graso, con cierta mineralidad, con una equilibrada acidez y buena conjunción”.

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.”

Restauradores magazine recommends Gran Reserva de la Finca 2005. Gran Reserva de la Finca 2005 stands out for its brilliant straw-yellow colour. In the nose, typical notes of toast and ripe white fruit can be detected, with an explosion of fruit aromas resulting from the evolution of the Xarel·lo grapes, fine and creamy. In the mouth its crispness stands out, with plenty of bubbles; it is aromatic, broad and creamy, with the excitement of long ageing and it clearly recalls the original fruit.
