De Nit

2019

“Looking for colour, I found Monestrell from the western part of the Serral hill, which provides complexity without losing freshness” Pepe Raventós

De Nit

Monestrell plot


The vines of the Barbera, Plana and Viader plots have deep soil with a clay loam texture, which provides us with freshness and elegance. The Monestrell plot, situated on the terraces on Serral hill, marks the De Nit sparkling wine with its personality.

2019 harvest


An excellent, very healthy vintage with a longer cycle and slow ripening.

 

The 2019 vintage was classic, Mediterranean and fresh. We had a late harvest, but at the same time extraordinarily healthy and tasty. It was a year marked by the classic Mediterranean climate with a wet autumn, a cool spring with occasional rain and a dry, hot summer. With a total rainfall of 556 mm. The cool spring and vintage caused a delay in the cycle and harvest. High rainfall in autumn and occasional rains in spring led to good vegetative growth. The summer was rainy but hot: 111.7 mm and maximum temperatures of 40ºC in July. With the plant's energy, we withstood the heat well. Late harvest with medium production, very healthy and concentrated grapes. In short, an excellent vintage with a longer cycle and slow ripening: ideal conditions for great wines.

Xarel·lo

Native variety that is planted on 50% of the entire estate. It is the first to bud, has the longest cycle of all our varieties, and at the harvest has the best sugar-acidity-intensity balance. It is our seal of identity, the variety that allows the long ageing of our sparkling wines, due to its good agricultural performance and its aromatic and taste potential.

Macabeu

Delicate, very versatile variety that needs extremely precise winegrowing in order to achieve the best expression. With a short cycle, it is the first variety to be harvested on the estate. Depending on its location on the estate, this same variety can produce two totally different expressions due to the orientation, the soil and the plant material.

Parellada

Moderately vigorous, rustic but at the same time sensitive to rain during the ripening period. The white harvest always ends with this variety. Native variety well-adapted to the high parts of the Penedès. The Parellada on our estate gives a touch of delicacy to our sparkling wines.

Monastrell

Mediterranean red, late-budding variety, which is sensitive to fungal diseases. Since 2006, we have used it in the De Nit coupage, to which it adds an aromatic complexity, silkiness and structure in the mouth, as well as an elegant touch of colour.
