Mas del Serral Vi Escumos de QualitatRegular price $207.99
Northwest of Barcelona, in the Anoia Valley countryside, surrounded by the Sierra of Montserrat Mountains, is a distinguished family vineyard dating back five hundred years, where some of the finest, most innovative and most inspiring Spanish wines have been cultivated: the Raventós estate.
Now under the watchful eyes of Pepe Raventos, Pepe identified a plot of old vine Xarel-lo and Bastard Negre planted in 1954 that he thought could produce one of the world's great sparkling wines. He succeeded, and his 2012 Mas del Serral is a moving, dramatic, and powerful wine for lovers of world-class bubbles.
'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 (2.96) 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. Drink 2023-2030.' - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 95 points
