Red Wine Castell del Remei Oda 2017
Availability: In stock
This is the new vitage of Castell del Remei Oda, produced in the northern region of Costers del Segre. Since Tomàs Cusiné took charge of the winery, its wines have consistently shown a fresher, lighter profile.
Harvested at their optimal ripening state, the grapes of this Spanish red wine were fermented in stainless steel tanks.
Then this red wine from Costers del Segre was aged in new American oak and 2nd year French oak barrels for 12 months.
Once bottled, Castell del Remei Oda 2017 by Castell del Remei was aged for a further 6 months.
Aerate 20 minutes before drinking.
The red wine Castell del Remei Oda has a very bright, medium-high cherry-coloured robe with a garnet rim.
Nice aromas of wild berries, ripe cherries and herbs combined with hints of spices, vanilla, clove and ground black pepper. The background of this blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon suggests dim remembrances of leather, coffee, balsam and menthol.
Pleasant and extremely fresh, this Crianza red wine has some mild tannins and a crisp acidity. Nice balance between fruit, spices, some toasted notes and some balsamic hints. This wine by Castell del Remei has a long, complex finish.
