Product Description
Details

Produced by Tomás Cusiné, Geol is a blended Spanish red wine coming from the  DO Costers del Segre.

It is basically made from Merlot, complemented with some Carignan and Cabernet Sauvignon. All three are planted in rocky-limestone soils, and located at an average altitude of 700 metres above sea level.

The grapes were carefully harvested and, once in the cellar, cold-macerated for 24 hours. After that, they were manually selected and then fermented in stainless steel tanks.

Finally, this Crianza red wine was transferred into French oak barrels, where it completed malolactic fermentation and was aged on its lees for over a period of 14 months with periodic stirrings.

The wine with the black starry label, Geol 2017 will pair excellently with hearty meat recipes.

Aerate this organic red wine some time before drinking.

Additional Information
Appearance

The red wine Geol is deep purple with a ruby rim.

Nose

Deep, juicy aromas of ripe black fruit, nuanced by some wooden notes and underbrush remembrances. As this blend of Merlot, Carignan and Cabernet Sauvignon opens, the nose evolves into suggestions of red berries, sweet spices, some earthy undertones, hints of coal and liquorice, and a thin layer of balsamic notes combined with some mineral remembrances. Rich and complex.

Palate

Smooth-textured and detailed, with great potential for growth, this red wine from Tomàs Cusiné shows a remarkable balance and a pleasantly warm character.  Fresh acidity, ripe tannins and a long, balsamic finish with remembrances of red fruit and spices.

Our personal opinion

Poised and deep, Geol 2017 is a wine that shows real character. Pair it with game dishes.

This is a juicy red wine, with good southern fruit but not excessive heat on the palate. Enjoyable
