Availability: In stock (29)

Previous vintage received 92 Points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The very pale sparkling rosé 2016 De Nit is a blend of Xarello, Macabeo, Parellada and around 5% Monastrell—so, it's not a bleeding of red grapes but a blend of white grapes with a bit of red to give it a little color. This is their signature rosé, with the soul of a white. It keeps all the character of the place and has a little bit of color, very little—it's extremely pale, and some could say it's a white. It has the dry, austere and direct palate of all of these wines, a dry and tasty palate. 2016 seems like a superb vintage for this bottling. This is adjusted to three grams of residual sugar. 180,000 bottles, some 4,500 magnums and 8,000 half-bottles were produced."

The 2017 is a blend of 48% Xarel-lo, 15% Macabeo, 32% Parellada and 5% Monastrell (used just to provide some pretty pink to the wine). It has aromas of light citrus, red flowers, white fruit, and a touch of cassis. The clean nose evolves with a smooth, voluminous and fruity texture, pleasant freshness and fine bubbles. Driven by a very good balance, with low dosage, this pale pink treat is Extra Brut.
