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 Joan Soler (from Abadal and LaFou).

This interesting Spanish white wine is made basically from Chardonnay and a smaller amount 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 2021 was blended and aged on its lees for over a period of  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.

Pair this Crianza white wine with white meat recipes, oily fish dishes and semi hard cheeses.

Appearance

The white wine Pura Vida is medium straw with some golden tinges.

Nose

A little closed at first, this blend of Chardonnay and Macabeo 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

This wine from Cellers Underground shows a nice balance between a bold, grassy structure and an lively acidity that makes it supple and light. We relish flavours of white fruit, citrus and Mediterranean herbs. Long, smooth finish with woodland and balsamic remembrances.

Our personal opinion

A finely crafted wine, Pura Vida 2021 is elegant and substantial.

I like the blends of Chard. with Med. grapes. They sometimes achieve a great balance.

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.
