Food Pairings for Castell del Remei White Blend Costers del Segre Blanc Planell
Situated in the DO of Costers del Segre, 120 km northwest of Barcelona, Castell del Remei has been one of the pioneers of Catalan winemaking for over a century. The estate's 80 hectares of vineyards combine local varieties, Tempranillo, Garnacha and Macabeo, with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. The wines reflect this combination of international grapes, bringing together bright modern fruit with the substance and depth of high quality grapes from well tended, mature vineyards. Grapes are grown in the estates own vineyards in the province of Lleida. Situated at 270 metres above sea level, the area enjoys the benefits of the Mediterranean-continental climate. Blanc Planell shows pale yellow with green reflections. It opens with a very fresh outbreak of tropical fruit aromas (melon, passionfruit, lychee) and a fennel trace. Following, there are subtle notes of white pulp fruits like pear and apple next to almond tree flower notes. Sweet on entrance, this broad and balanced white boasts extraordinary acidity that confers vividness and freshness. The after-taste shows thin bitterness extending the persistence, finishing on notes of fig tree leaf and maracuyá.
