Conca del Riu Anoia Brut, 'Textures de Pedra', Raventos i Blanc

The exploration of 3 local red varieties: Xarel.lo Vermell, Bastard Negre and Sumoll. Textures de Pedra is the highest expression of the Mediterranean varieties, the Penedès climate, the stony soils of Conca del Riu Anoia and the result of a long aging on the lees, a “Blanc de Negres” which is concentrated on the palate and has great potential for aging.

The grapes enter the winery by gravity. At each stage, the atmosphere is controlled by dry ice. Slow pressing at low pressures. Static sedimentation at low temperatures. First fermentation in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature. Assemblage and second fermentation in the bottle with a minimum ageing period of 42 months in a horizontal position. No “liqueur d’expédition” added. Disgorging date stated on the back label.

Review:
Pale yellow. A highly complex bouquet evokes mineral-accented pear, quince, orange and pungent flowers, along with hints of tarragon and ginger. Juicy and sharply focused on the palate, offering concentrated tangerine, Anjou pear, persimmon and honeysuckle flavors that pick up a smoky nuance on the back half. Blends power and delicacy with a deft hand and finishes extremely long and precise, with repeating florality and a touch of smoky lees. This finely detailed, vibrant wine delivers superb value in the context of world-class sparklers.
