    The blend of 50% Xarello, 40% Macabeo and 10% Parellada for the 2014 De la Finca was produced from different plots planted with the different varieties in the so-called fossil vineyard, Vinya dels Fòssils. The vineyard is in the east-facing part of their property and tends to produce the more mineral wines, with low pH and high acidity. Each variety was fermented separately, blended and left in contact with the lees for at least six months before being put in bottle for the second fermentation and aging of at least 30 months. This is the wine that they think best represents their estate, the one that represents the Raventós i Blanc style, with enough character from the lees and the Mediterranean character and the marine minerality of the soils.
