Pepe Raventós’s Mas del Serral comes exclusively from an historic 1.92-hectare plot of 80-year-old Xarello vines, grown on limestone-rich soils. The wine is only made in top vintages and less than 900 bottles are produced. The wine is terroir-driven, with earthy mineral notes dominating both the nose and palate. The wine has lovely, toasted hazelnuts, sea spray, iodine and savoury autolytic aromas. There is a fantastic attack on the palate with bright acidity, sherbet, fresh pear and citrus fruit notes mingling with almond nuttiness and mouth-watering saline minerality. The bready autolytic notes come through on the finish. At 10 years of age there is still so much energy to the wine; it will be fascinating to see this develop further in bottle.
