Product Description
Details

Produced by the Castell del Remei winery, this Spanish white wine comes from the northern Catalan region of Costers del Segre.

The wine is made from an almost equal blend of Chardonnay and Macabeo, both coming from estate-owned vineyards.

Each grape variety was separately harvested. Once in the cellar, Castell del Remei Oda Blanc was fermented in new American and French oak barrels, where it was subsequently aged for over a period of 7 months.

During that time, Castell del Remei Oda Blanc 2018 was periodically stirred in order to maximize the contact between the wine and its lees, thus adding creaminess and roundness to the wine.

Pair this white wine from Costers del Segre with baked fish, pasta, cheese and rice dishes.

Appearance

The wine Castell del Remei Oda Blanc has a very bright, clean, straw-yellow colour with golden tinges.

Nose

Intense aromas of ripe white fruit, baked apples, orange rind and a touch of green lemon. On the background of this white wine fermented in oak, some notes of dry fruit, dried apricots, milk jam and aromatic herbs.

Palate

This blend of Chardonnay and Macabeo has a sweet entrance on the palate, suggesting notes of vanilla, toasted almonds, honey and orange rind. Velvety texture, lively acidity and ripe tannins. Oda Blanc from Castell del Remei has a persistent finish reminiscent of ripe white fruit and citrus.

Our personal opinion

A consistent wine, Castell del Remei Oda Blanc 2018 will delight those who enjoy oak-aged whites. Pair it with creamy cheeses, white meat and oily fish dishes.
