Cervoles White is a wine from Catalonia,region of Spain ,The Catalan wine region is located along the Mediterranean coast in northeastern Spain and is strongly influenced by its Mediterranean climate. Along the coast temperatures are warm with moderate rainfall but conditions become progressively more arid further inland. The region is marked by warm climates along the coast and cooler temperatures through the foothills up to plateaus of more than 2,000 ft (610 m) above sea level. The area has a diversity of soil types, mostly calcareous sediments mixed with alluvium and clay. The Catalan wine region includes 9 Denominació de Origen and 1 Denominació d'Origen Qualificada (DOQ) region, the Priorat. The Catalunya DO is a generic appellation that covers the entire region for wines that do not fall under any other DO designation.
Cervoles White is located in Catalonia's sub-region of Costers del Segre ,Costers del Segre is a DO (Denominación de Origen) wine region located in Catalonia, on the north-eastern coast of Spain. The name means 'Banks of the Segre' – a river which originates in the Pyrenees mountain ranges and meets the Ebro River just south of the city of Lleida. Most vineyards sit in the Segre's expansive basin. The DO was created in 1986, but has seen many evolutions since its inception, including new international varieties, adopting modern California winemaking techniques and the creation of sub-regions. Despite its somewhat inconvenient location, in terms of trade routes, winemaking has flourished in Costers del Segre for many centuries. It continued uninterrupted until phylloxera hit the region hard in the late 19th Century. Many traditional winegrowing areas were not replanted; they were given over to olives instead. Traditional varieties such as Samso (Carinena) gave way to more popular grapes, both local (Monastrell) and international (Cabernet Sauvignon). The region rose to prominence again thanks to a single estate, Raimat, located in the western extremity of the designation. Raimat is Spain's largest privately owned winery and one of its most innovative, and essentially it's responsible for putting Costers del Segre on the world wine map.
Cervoles Celler is a country residence divided into 10 plots. The winery planted Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo, Merlot, Grenache, Chardonnay and Macabeo in the 1980s. Following the highest standarts and paying acute attention to details, Cervoles Celler produces world class wines by hand-pruning vines, hand harvesting grapes and controlling all winemaking processes.
Straw-yellow in colour with metallic and golden glints, crystal-clear with dense legs. Intense and complex aromas, displaying subtle notes from the cask ageing: spices (nutmeg and vanilla), toasted and smoky notes, hints of tropical fruit (ripe pineapple). Aeration reveals aromas of the ageing on lees (yeast), biscuity hints and white-fleshed fruit (apple). Voluptuous mouth-feel, fleshy on the palate, with well-integrated tannins adding volume together with acidity adding freshness. Very long, harmonious finish, with hints of Jijona turrón (a type of almond nougat) and a touch of citrus peel.
