Once in the cellar, the grapes were kept chilled for 24 hours. Then they were cold-soaked for 4 hours and fermented with their lees.
After that, Pura Vida 2018 was blended and aged on its lees for over a period of 8 months. Before finishing the process, 20% of this wine from Costers del Segre was aged for 3 months in French oak barrels.
Then the different wines were all put together and aged for some time in tanks to assemble them. Finally, this white wine from Costers del Segre was bottled.
The white wine Pura Vida has a straw yellow colour with pale golden tinges.
A little closed at first, this white wine by Cellers Underground slowly opens to notes of ripe white fruit, withered flowers and citrus. The nose keeps growing and finally blooms displaying aromas of dry apricot and even some touches of lavender.
The expertise of the winemakers clearly shows here, since this white wine from Costers del Segre shows a nice balance between a bold, grassy structure and an enlivening acidity that makes it supple and light. We relish flavours of white fruit, citrus and Mediterranean herbs. This blend of Chardonnay & Macabeo has a long, smooth finish with woodland and balsamic remembrances.
|Our personal opinion||
A finely crafted wine, Pura Vida 2018 pairs well with rice and hearty fish dishes.
