Details

A blend of two trans-Pyrenean varieties, Müller-Thurgau and Pinot Blanc (White Pinot Noir), this young white wine was born in the Baldomar Valley, a region belonging to the Costers del Segre DO.

The grapes were gently crushed, destemmed and only 60% of the resulting juice was used to make this delicate Cristiari Blanc 2016. Racked by gravity, alcoholic fermentation took place at a controlled temperature of 16ºC. 

Drink this Spanish white wine until 2020.

Additional Information

Appearance

Bright and clean, this white wine Cristiari Blanc has a straw yellow colour with faint greenish nuances.

Nose

Subtle and delicate on the nose, this white wine from Costers del Segre displays intense notes of wild flowers and fruits, along with some notes of herbs. The blend of Müller-Thurgau and Pinot Blanc results in a truly unconventional nose.

Palate

Young and fresh, this wine is also delicate and smooth on the palate, showing notes of citrus, pears, some mineral hints and a crisp acidity. Lingering finish and a lemony, flowery aftertaste.

Our personal opinion

This Spanish wine Cristiari 2016 is a well-balanced white wine made by the Vall de Baldomar winery from a rare combination of grapes. A suggestive option.
