Blend of Chardonnay & Macabeo, aged in oak barrels for 8 months.
Bright, pale yellow with gold highlights. Strong patisserie notes. Smokey notes. Fresh tropical fruit (grapefruit, mandarin, pineapple). On the palate, its unctuousness and volume stand out. Toasted notes. Fresh acidity. Honey with lemon and vanilla persisting on the finish.
To be fully appreciated, some projects require a perspective that only comes with time. This is the case of Cérvoles Celler, the venture first undertaken by Tomàs Cusiné 25 years ago in an ancestral wine-making land, reclaiming a practice that, at that time, didn't attract much interest in the world of wine: mountain viticulture.
Used to working with the vineyards on Urgell plains in the land of Castell del Remei, the property acquired in 1982, for Cusiné the vineyards at La Pobla de Cérvoles represented a true revelation and an unbeatable opportunity to rethink his work as a winemaker, taking on a far-reaching commitment to the land of Les Garrigues, in Lleida, and its people.
Cérvoles Celler was created in 1997, a winery designed to produce high quality single estate wines, with its sights firmly set on the ultimate goal: “To be the first mountain viticulture project set up in Catalonia”.
Cérvoles Celler lies at an altitude of 700 to 750 m in Les Garrigues, Lleida, the southernmost sub-zone of the DO Costers del Segre. This is high land crossed by rivers rising in the Sierra de Llena, the last mountain range of Montsant, which have eroded the countryside and carved out large valleys.
There are 55 ha of vineyards on 12 different plots. Organic Farming. Loam-silt and clay-loam soils with gravel. Mediterranean/continental climate: cold and dry with thermal contrasts and winds. Low rainfall, 450 mm. Result: wines with a high concentration and minerality.
