Description

The Castell d’Encus vineyard is located at 850-1250m high, in an area of ??maximum sun exposure, and it is bordered by an important wooded area. The property consists of approximately 95 hectares of land, 25 hectares of which are used for vine growing.
The winery was born with a clear experimental vocation, aiming to obtain high quality wines. This is why vines were planted in high density and low production ratio varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Petit Verdot, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Semillon and Albariño. They were all planted with the conviction that the cool climate in which they are placed is the best for their growth.?
This wine is light straw yellow in colour. The aroma is high intensity with floral notes of daisies, mango and grapefruit. Dry peach notes and lime citrus notes on the palate. Long with good freshness and acidity, and a fruity and complex after taste. This wine will develop the cold weather Riesling complexity while aging in the bottle, always well integrated with the high acidity and long glycerine characteristics from botrytis wine.
