"This is an intense and serious sparkling wine that shows excellent depth, concentration and complexity. Pie crust, biscuits, sour cream and minerals with a touch of glazed lemon loaf. Broad and full-bodied with intense mousse and a lasting, saline finish that goes on for more than half a minute. Generous but extremely serious. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold."

"Ravent¢s' unique 'blanc de noirs' † a blend of three red varieties Xarel-lo vermell, Sumolland Bastard Negre (Graciano), although Xarel-lo vermell is not really a red variety but apink-skinned clone of Xarel-lo. Stony soils at the top of the Serral hill. A totally fascinating,original creation, this is less about mineral tension and more around an intriguingaromaticism of black plum, peach and liquorice, supple with its fluffy mousse and carefulextraction but hiding a vein of dark bread and apricot intensity. Almost a ros, by somemeasures, it's beguiling stuf"

"The smoky and flinty 2019 Textures de Pedra was produced with 50% Xarel.lo Vermell and equal parts of Sumoll and Bastard Negre from the higher vineyard on the property that was planted 20 years ago. The base wine matured for nine months in concrete with the lees and then was put to referment in bottle, where it matured with the lees for some 42 months. It's spicy and smoky with an almost meaty side to it, like barbecued meat, almost savory, with a golden, deeper color. The palate feels polished and integrated, with small bubbles and gentle acidity. It has 12.5% alcohol with a pH of 3.16 and is bone dry (0.8 grams of sugar), as it corresponds to a brut nature. This is polished and ready."
