Castell del Remei Blanc Planell Costers del Segre 2010

Castell del Remei Blanc Planell Costers del Segre 2010

  • A little-known Spanish superstar!
  • Refreshing and accessible, but with a 'serious' edge.
  • Super-refreshing on its own - an ideal fish partner too!

If you're disillusioned with Spanish white wine, think again. This beauty is assertive and delicious, oozing bags of fresh, crisply intense character. White peach, green apples and fennel characters abound, thanks to the wonderful local Macabeo grape. It finishes with a flourish of pithy citrus and almond - the 'serious' edge that we talked about - and screams out for expertly-prepared fish dishes of all kinds. Try now.

Andrew Baker talks about Castell del Remei Blanc Planell Costers del Segre.

"Intense and fruity nose with hints of exotic fruits, apple and white peach."

Manuel Cusine

Winemaker: Manuel Cusiné

Winery: Bodegas Castell del Remei

Country: Spain

Bodegas Castell del Remei was designed and built in 1780 with the purpose to make aged wines.

The drinking experience: On approach, this unique creation of theirs appears pale yellow with metallic highlights. There is a varietal note of fig leaves followed by floral aromas and hints of fennel, aniseed and dill, with a touch of citrus. That's the beautiful Macabeo grape. Smooth and balanced on the palate, with a subtle bitterness that adds length. Slightly acidic lingering finish, with notes of under-ripe fruit.

Vignato Gambellara Classico 2010

Vignato Gambellara Classico Italian White Wine

Type: Garganega

When we first tasted this wine we were blown away. It remains one of the most exciting wine experiences of late! It rekindled our passion in the pure, clarion wines of the north of Italy with a completely different flavour spectrum and a vitality.

Trainshed Wineworks The Pudding Stone 2011

Type: Grenache Blanc blend

We're all for the cloning of great, established styles. In the best way, they never quite work, never quite taste the same. And this is the great part. They emulate and, at the same time, create something completely new. In this case a Chateauneuf Blanc-style with a distinctly South African twist.

This wine is made by a man called Jesus at Bodegas Pirineos. This Bodega has always boasted some of the oldest vineyards in the whole region, giving a silky concentration to its produce. This speciality is important since many other great vineyards with indigenous stock have been ripped up.
