Raventos silencis

"Silencis" 2012

Raventós i Blanc

Earthy aromas of ripe pear and a pleasant hint of anise that embody the subtlety of a Xarel•lo very carefully tended on the vine. On the palate it's dynamic and powerful, with a captivating combination of the austerity and volume provided by careful ageing on the lees. A rich but silky wine that reflects the efforts made to achieve quality.

Reviews

  • "88 points. 2012 Silencis, which is pure Xarello harvested on September 5 and 6 from a very dry vintage. Malolactic fermentation was blocked to keep the freshness and the acidity. It has aromas of lime and grapefruit and a light to medium-bodied palate with very good acidity and freshness. Drink now-2016." (Wine Advocate)
