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, Auzells 2020 was transferred into concrete diposits and aged on lees for 3 months. Finally, the wine was blended and bottled.

This a complex, interesting white wine from Costers del Segre.

Additional Information
Appearance

The white wine Auzells has a straw yellow colour with a greenish rim and some golden tinges.

Nose

This blend of Macabeo, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Albariño and Riesling is kaleidoscopic. Bone fruit, white fruit, spices, deep mineral undertones, notes of flowers, hints of freshly-cut grass and aromatic herbs.

Palate

This wine of Tomás Cusiné is intense and velvety-bodied, with a good acidity and some interesting mineral notes. Citrusy and balsamic, with good ripe fruit and a long, delicately bitter finish.

Our personal opinion

A successful blend of five varieties, Auzells 2020 is an atypical and satisfying white wine from northern Catalonia.
