Details

Cristiari d'Alòs 2015 is a single varietal wine produced by the Vall de Baldomar winery.

This Spanish red wine is made from Merlot vineyards cultivated in the northern Catalan region of Costers del Segre.

The wine was vinified following an interesting procedure.

After being harvested and destemmed, the grapes were crushed and the "free-run" juice was cooled before fermentation.

Once alcoholic fermentation was completed, the wine was macerated again, and then it underwent malolactic fermentation.

Finally, it was aged for 2 months in French oak barrels.

Drink this red wine over the next 2 years.

 

 

Additional Information

Appearance

Cristiari d'Alòs has an intense cherry colour with a garnet rim.

 

Nose

This Merlot from Costers del Segre smells of red berries, vegetables and spices, nuanced by remembrances of vanilla, clove, eucalyptus, dry earth and mineral.

 

Palate

Medium-bodied and nicely balanced, with plenty of freshness and good grip. This red wine by Vall de Baldomar conveys notes spices and toast, underscored by remembrances of red fruit, garrigue and balsam. Mild tannins, good acidity and long finish.

 

Our personal opinion

Cristiari d'Alòs 2015 is young, drinkable and characterful. We suggest combining it with a nice pair of scrambled eggs with sausage.
