For a fabulous fiesta of fizz pop the cork on this full-flavoured little blend of Macabeo Xarel·lo and Parellada grapes. Perfect for sipping on a summer evening or with seafood and shellfish.

This is one of the most exciting and rebellious wines in the Harvey Nichols own label range. The Super Tuscans sparked a revolution by breaking free from the shackles of Italian wine law; this Conca del Riu Anoia created by the experts at Raventós i Blanc looks set to do the same for Spanish sparkling wine…

A new Grand Cru of Spanish fizz and a serious challenger to Champagne this deeply aromatic and rich white bubbly erupts from the glass with apple pie toasted sesame seeds buttered toast Amalfi lemons cherry blossom and a refreshing maritime tang like a whip-crack of salty sea spray. An exquisite aperitif or a natural partner to fish and chips battered halloumi white anchovies smoked salmon tapas or scrambled eggs on an English muffin.

The Raventós family are a rebellious bunch. In 1872 Josep Maria Raventós i Fatjo created Spain’s first sparkling wine which would go on to become the enormous Codorníu. In 1986 his descendent Josep Maria Raventós i Blanc sold his shares in the family-owned Codorníu to set up Raventós i Blanc. Following in the family’s mutinous footsteps Pepe Raventós took the decision in 2012 to quit the Cava DO frustrated by its tarnished reputation low quality and volume-driven attitude. He set up his own quality-oriented designation Conca del Riu Anoia employing some of the strictest regulations in the world of sparkling wine. He only uses native grape varieties and pays five times more than most Cava producers do but they must be organic and biodynamic with yields kept low. His wines are aged on the lees for at least 18 months before disgorging (two times longer than most Cava) are always vintage and use the lowest amount of sulphur possible. This drastic tightening of the rules has resulted in staggeringly beautiful wines as you’ll soon find out.
