Product Description

Produced by the Vall de Baldomar winery, Cristiari d'Alòs is a single varietal Merlot made from vines cultivated in the northern Catalan region of Costers del Segre.

This interesting Spanish red wine was vinified following an interesting procedure. After being harvested and destemmed, the grapes were crushed and the "free-run" juice was cooled before fermentation.

Once alcoholic fermentation was completed, this red wine from Costers del Segre was macerated for a short period of time. Then it was transferred into Central European oak barrels, where it underwent malolactic fermentation.

After that, Cristiari d'Alòs 2018 was aged for 2 months in the barrels.

Additional Information
Additional Information

The Spanish red wine Cristiari d'Alòs has an intense cherry colour with a garnet rim.


This red wine from Vall de Baldomar smells of red berries, vegetables and spices, nuanced by remembrances of vanilla, clove, eucalyptus, dry earth and mineral.


Medium-bodied and nicely balanced, with plenty of freshness and good grip. This varietal Merlot conveys notes spices and toast, underscored by remembrances of red fruit, garrigue and balsam. A wine from Costers del Segre with some mild tannins, good acidity and long finish.

Our personal opinion

The young Spanish red wine Cristiari d'Alòs 2018 is certainly drinkable and characterful. We suggest combining it with a nice pair of scrambled eggs with sausage.

Unexpectedly nice. Smooth as a typical Merlot, but fresher.
