Details

This is the new vintage of Biu de Sort, a high-altitude Spanish white wine produced by the Celler Batlliu de Sort, a company based in the mountainous region of Pallars Sobirà (Lleida).

Made from a blend of Riesling and Viognier, the grapevines are located at an altitude over 900 metres above sea level. Soils are mainly composed of clay, limestone and slate.

Interestingly, the winery carries out environmentally-friendly farming practices and follows the guidelines of organic and biodynamic agriculture.

Harvest of this high-altitude white wine was performed by hand. The grapes were vinified in stainless steel tanks and aged on its lees for over a period of 14 months.

This is a very pure, interesting white wine from the DO Costers del Segre, right on the Catalan side of the Pyrénées.

Drink Biu de Sort 2016 until 2022.

Additional Information

Appearance

The white wine Biu de Sort has a bright, slightly greenish colour with some steely tinges.

Nose

This blend of Riesling & Viognier from Costers del Segre has an enticing nose. Crystalline aromas of white fruit and vibrant notions of citrus, along with aromas of flowers, undergrowth, fennel, water and wet earth.

Palate

Unctuous and well-balanced, this white wine by Celler Batlliu de Sort suggests some prominent notes of citrus, aromatic herbs, white fruit and petroleum. Great acidity and long finish with some bitter remembrances.

Our personal opinion

The uncommon Biu de Sort 2016 will pair excellently with a great Foie Gras from Strasbourg, or with some Bluefin tuna marinated in a Premium Spanish Extra Virgin Olive oil.

    Mouth-watering white from the Iberian side of Pirineos. Texture I find particularly appealing.

  2. biu white review by Philosopher king on 9/14/2018
    Value

    Quite pure, with an innuendo of flowers and tropical fruit. Delicious.

  3. sort review by White biu on 10/21/2017
    Value

    An ingenious blend. Viognier brings sexiness and Riesling acidity. The result is very nice. Peaches, tropical fruit, a touch of honey and a long finish.
