Personal coupage


Manuel Raventós Negra, descendent de Josep Maria Raventós i Blanc 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 colour.

A sparkling wine that, due to its exceptional character, is only bottled in the most exceptional vintages.

Winemaking


The six years of ageing in stacks give it a bright gold colour and a marvellous structure on the palate, as well as an enveloping silky texture with a long, bitter finish typical of wines from the Conca del Riu Anoia.

Manuel Raventós 2013 reinvents the coupage of the 2012 vintage. After making two consecutive vintages (2011, 2012) with a single-variety Xarel·lo coupage.

 

Manuel Raventós 2013 stands out with a coupage of contrasting native varieties, the white Xarel·lo variety (40%) and the new addition of the red Sumoll variety (60%).

2014 harvest


A warm and dry year.

 

The 2014 vintage began with a very warm autumn that extended the vine’s period of energy reserves. Rainfall meant that the water capacity of the soil was complete. The winter was dry and very warm, causing an advanced budding of the strain. Spring, with vegetative development, was warm and very dry. A vegetative cycle with little water produced a greater concentration in the grapes and a drop in production. Sporadic rainfall in July and at the beginning of August favoured a good ripening of the grapes. The harvest was not particularly productive but of good quality with a high acidity for our wines. During the agricultural year we had a very low rainfall of 421 L/m2 and warm temperatures with an average of 15.8 °C.

 

Balanced and full-bodied 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.
