Product Description
Details

The producer of Pura Vida, Cellers Underground, is a joint project of two distinguished winemakers: Richard Sanz (from Sitios de Bodega and Mencía D2) and Joan Soler (from Abadal and LaFou).

This Spanish white wine is made from a blend dominated by Chardonnay, and completed with a portion of Macabeo. Both are grown in plots with shallow limestone soils under a continental climate. 

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.

Appearance

The white wine Pura Vida has a straw yellow colour with pale golden tinges.

Nose

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.

Palate

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.

I like the blends of Chard. with Med. grapes. They sometimes achieve a great balance. Review by Prosst!! (Posted on 21/08/2018)

I was given this wine as a gift and it was a pleasant surprise. Flowers and lavender on the nose. The palate is rich and very long. Review by Pure life (Posted on 12/11/2017)
