Pansa Blanca is named after the D.O. Alella's native grape variety. This Designation of Origin, located to the north of Barcelona, is one of the smallest and oldest in Spain. The Raventós de Alella winery seeks to express the Mediterranean character of the region in this wine. The result is a white wine with intense aromas of white fruit and tropical notes. Everyone who tries it comes back for more, perhaps due to its creamy texture.
Gold color and greenish in hue.
Intense, fruity in aroma with all the sumptuous personality of the variety. Stone fruit aromas as peach, as well as white fruit (apple) and a floral remind.
Wine with volume, with a long after-taste and well balanced.
The Raventós de Alella winery is located among the old vines and forests towards the interior of the coastal mountain range that divides the D.O. Alella. Since 1981, the year when the first vintage was made, the winery's philosophy has always been to extract the very best possibilities from a grape variety that genuinely belongs to the area: Pansa Blanca. The innovative, cutting-edge and international character of the winery has resulted in wines that are in constant evolution, maintaining the maximum respect for the natural materials and the identity of the area.
