Mas Del Serral 2007
Wine Region: Conca del Riu Anoia, Barcelona
Grape: Xarel-lo & Bastard Negre
Clear golden, with perfect bubble stream. Fresh, with white flowers and a touch of minerality. It's long and focused with superb acidity and precision for a wine sparkling wine this old. Flavors of green apple, melon, white flowers and a hint of petrol and brioche. Pretty amazing stuff.
About The Winery
Mas Del Serral is a pathway with a single destination: the origin. When we distance ourselves from our roots, we are able to reflect about the place we come from, there where our identity was shaped, where we learnt to dream as children and where fears was nothing more than horizons to cross. Perhaps this is what happened to Joan Miro when, in 1922, he was staying in Paris and painted La Masia, The Farm, the painting where he paid homage to the country house in Mont-Roig del Camp where he learnt to draw when he was three years old. Similarly, observing the painting by Miro in the National Gallery during a key time when he was far from home, Pepe Raventos realised that his dream was to restore Mas Del Serral to its origin: traditional algriculture based on the harmony between nature, animals and mankind and the evidence that, as the painter said, "to be universal you have to be radically local".
