“Looking for colour, I found Monestrell from the western part of the Serral hill, which provides complexity without losing freshness” Pepe Raventós. The vines of the Barbera, Plana and Viader plots have deep soil with a clay loam texture, which provides us with freshness and elegance. The Monestrell plot, situated on the terraces on Serral hill, marks the De Nit sparkling wine with its personality. A year defined by extreme contrasts due to our Mediterranean climate. Autumn was hot and very damp (308L/m2). Winter was cold with a heavy snowfall on 4 February that left up to 10 cm of snow on some parts of the estate. Spring had a cool start with a night frost on 9 April that caused 5% of the Xarel·lo buds from la Vinya dels Fòssils to freeze as it is a north-facing vineyard. All of this combined with just 62 L/m2 of rainfall between January and July, created some extreme conditions for the vegetative development; the varieties that adapted best to these conditions were Xarel·lo, Sumoll and Monastrell. During the agricultural year (from October 2014 to September 2015) we had very little rainfall 375L/m2 and the average temperature was 15.5ºC.
