Availability: In stock
Produced by Tomás Cusiné (who also crafts the Cara Nord wines in Conca de Barberà, and the Castell del Remei wines in Costers del Segre), Auzells is an organic white wine made from a blend the five grape varieties: Macabeo, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Riesling, and Albariño.
Belonging to the DO Costers del Segre, the vines were carefully harvested, Then each variety was separately vinified in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 16ºC.
After that, 10% of this Spanish white wine was transferred into French oak barrels, while 90% of it remained in the tanks.
Both portions were aged for 6 months on their lees. Finally, Auzells 2018 was blended and bottled.
The white wine Auzells has a very bright straw-yellow colour with a greenish rim and some golden tinges.
This intense white wine from Tomàs Cusiné is almost kaleidoscopic. Bone fruit, white fruit, spices, deep mineral undertones, notes of flowers, hints of freshly-cut grass and aromatic herbs.
This complex blend of white varieties from Costers del Segre is intense and velvety-bodied, with a good acidity and some interesting mineral notes. Citrusy and balsamic, with good fruit and a long, delicately bitter finish.
