The wine

Their “premier” wine, by the company’s own admission and a fine example of their work. Macabeo is the primary grape here, but the complexity comes from using a blend of varieties and the different soil compositions. Harvested manually and quickly transferred to the winery, the grapes are fed in by gravity. At each stage of the wine-making process, the atmosphere is controlled by using dry ice.

A fruity Cava (lemon and apple), smooth, unblemished, with well-balanced acidity. Totally refreshing, with an abundance of fine bubbles.

A second fermentation occurs in bottle, followed by a minimum ageing period of 15 months lying in a horizontal position.

Furthermore, Josep Raventós Fatjá is accredited with producing the first Cava and using grapes from this estate in 1872. The family has had close links in the past with Cordoníu,...
