The history of Raimat goes back to 1914, when Manuel Raventós i Domènech acquired a plot of arid and unfertile land in a unique setting, converting it into what it is today: 2,245 hectares of 100% certified organic vineyards. Raimat is the expression of wines from Lleida, a land renowned for the quality of its fruit, where the continental climate means that the grapes from this estate give intense and flavourful wines. The winery is a pioneer in the use of the latest growing and winemaking technology, making a clear commitment to sustainable viticulture and to respecting the land and the environment.
Raimat’s best vine plots were selected to make this red wine with a coupage Cabernet Sauvignon-Syrah.
The grapes underwent cold prefermentation maceration in order to bring out their fruity aromas and give the wine more structure and colour. Fermentation was carried out with the pomace in stainless steel vats for 10 days at a controlled temperature of 25-28 ºC. Stirrings of the lees were carried out during this time at different intervals and intensities, depending on the grade of fermentation of the wine, so as to extract all the berries’ best properties. After fermentation the wine remained in contact with the pomace in order to achieve even more aroma, colour and structure. Once post fermentation maceration was completed, the wine was separated from the skins. It was then pressed and commenced malolactic fermentation.
Raimat was born with the conviction that sustainable agricultural practices were the best guarantee of conservation of the natural environment.
