Details

Auzells 2016 is a white wine from Costers del Segre crafted by Tomás Cusiné (who is also the producer of the Cara Nord wines in Conca de Barberà).

The wine is a complex blend of both native and international grapes: Macabeo, Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc, Parellada, Chardonnay, Riesling, Müller-Thurgau, Muscat of Frontignan and Albariño.

All of them are grown in the northern Catalonian region of Costers del Segre, in the province of Lleida.

Harvested at their optimal ripening point, the grapes were carefully selected and separately vinified in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 16ºC.

After that, 10% of the wine was transferred into French oak barrels, while 90% of it remained in the tanks.

Both portions were aged for 3 months, after which this white wine from Costers del Segre was blended and bottled.

Drink now to 2019.

Additional Information

Appearance

Auzells has a very bright straw-yellow colour with a greenish rim and some golden tinges.

Nose

This white wine by Tomàs Cusiné is kaleidoscopic. Bone fruit, white fruit, spices, deep mineral undertones, notes of flowers, hints of freshly-cut grass and aromatic herbs.

Palate

This blend of white varieties from Costers del Segre is intense and velvety-bodied, with a good acidity and some interesting mineral notes. Dominant flavours of white fruit and citrus and long, refreshing, slightly bitter finish.

Our personal opinion

Auzells 2016 is a truly original Spanish white wine that pairs well with fish and shrimp recipes.
