Vol d'Ànima, formerly known as Ànima de Raimat, is the culmination of our first 100 years of history. The tiles that wear their label are the same ones that look on the walls of Raimat Castle since 1935, after the reform carried out by the architect Rafael Masó. This wine represents a new style in the house in order to adapt to new trends, with sustainable and organic viticulture of the varietals that best express the terroir of the winery: Chardonnay and Xarel·lo, betting on biodiversity, balance and respect for the land.
Straw yellow with green hues that denote its youth and freshness.
Very complex. Outstanding notes of yellow fruit (peaches and nectarines), and white fruit (pears and melon), conferred by the Chardonnay variety, mingle with citrus and tropical notes, which add freshness. These aromas are intertwined with hints of white flowers contributed by the Xarel·lo.
A young, fresh wine that is also well-structured and creamy. The yellow fruit comes back in the mouth, together with fresh, citrusy, lemon-lime notes that last a long time.
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.
After pressing, the must was cooled below 10ºC/50°F so primary aromas were maintained during static decanting.
After pressing, the must was cooled below 10ºC/50°F so primary aromas were maintained during static decanting. The clean must was then fermented at a controlled temperature of 16°C/61°F, the process lasting 2-3 weeks. Both grape varieties were fermented separately. After fermentation and fining, the final blend was made.
Spring was colder and wetter than usual at Raimat, which meant a delay in the growth cycle and forced us to keep a closer eye on the vine, to stave off any disease.
Spring was colder and wetter than usual at Raimat, which meant a delay in the growth cycle and forced us to keep a closer eye on the vine, to stave off any disease. The summer, however, was hot and dry, as always. This led to gradual, optimal ripening. During the white grape ripening phase, some precipitation delayed the harvest, so we had to wait until suitable levels were reached. The wait was well worth it, because the aromas and freshness of the white grapes are truly magnificent.
