Product Description
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).

A varietal Riesling, it is produced from grapevines planted in Finca La Borda, a estate with slate soils located at an altitude over 900 metres above sea level.

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 10 months. After that, Biu de Sort 2017 was aged for another 14 months in the bottle before its commercial release.

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

Additional Information
Appearance

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

Nose

This varietal Riesling from the DO Costers del Segre has an enticing nose. Crystalline aromas of white fruit and vibrant notions of citrus, along with aromas of flowers, undergrowth, fennel, fine lees 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 2017 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.

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

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.
