Mas del Serral by Pepe Raventós Xarello and Bastarda Negre 2007
This vintage comes from a relatively warm winter, rain during the spring and a gentle summer; the stock grew with force. The lack of water in the summer caused hydric stress that advanced the cycle by one week compared to other years. Finally, the rain in early August helped the plant continue to ripen calmly until the harvest. With an average temperature of 14.5° C, and a very low rainfall of 365 mm, we had performances of 15% less than the average of Clos del Serral. An extremely dry and temperate vintage, perfect for a long ageing.
