‘The extremely young and undeveloped 2012 Mas del Serral was produced with a field blend of Xarel.lo and Bastard Negre (Graciano) from the oldest vineyard on the family property (planted between 1950 and 1954). The wine has 12.5% alcohol and very low pH and is incredibly subtle and delicate with inner strength and energy. It has incipient notes of fennel and aniseed, energetic and very much alive but in need of more time to unfurl more layers of aromas and gain weight in bottle. 2012 was a dry year, and the wine has a dry and stony palate. It also has high acidity through concentration of the juice and is mineral and austere, with no heat or fat. 2,440 bottles produced. This ages in bottle for at least 100 months. 2023-2030’ – Luis Gutiérrez, Wine Advocate, 95/100

Producer information Since 1497, and for more than 20 generations, the Raventós family, has been working the land and tending vines in the Penedès region in Spain. 21st generation, Pepe Raventós, officially joined the family business, Raventós I Blanc in 2001 and in 2014 he also started his own project. The estate’s particular microclimate is influenced by the river, a lake, two streams as well as a hill known as the Turó del Serral. The soils which were formed over 16 million years ago are calcareous with marine fossils which are the ideal conditions for producing wines of freshness, elegance and a powerful salinity. All of the plots are biodynamically farmed so that the terroir shines in the wines.
