Castell d'Encus, Costers del Segre ‘Acusp’ 75cl

Acusp is a great red wine made in the Costers del Segre by the Castell d'Encus winery. Castell d'Encus is the personal project of Raul Bobet, who is known for developing one of the most popular wines in the Priorat, Ferrer Bobet. Raul Bobet has a sincere philosophy, based on the maximum care of the vineyard, passion, utmost dedication and respect. 

Acusp is a varietal Pinot Noir, from vineyards planted at 1000 metres in altitude. Castell d'Encus is the winery that produces wines at the highest altitude in Spain, surrounded by forest and with great sun exposure. Vines are planted on ex-calcareous soils. Poor soils with a climate of many contrasts in temperature give a high quality grape. The harvest is done manually and the grapes are moved in small boxes of 10 kg, which keeps the grapes in perfect condition. Malolactic fermentation occurs in barrels. Acusp is neither filtered nor stabilized, so some precipitates may appear. A great red wine. Thin, soft, elegant. Spectacular. A great mountain wine. A wine of great altitude.

Ruby red colour with slight bluish hues. Medium layer, clean and very bright. A subtle and seductive nose. Floral notes with red fruits like strawberries and raspberries, berries, pepper, cloves, violets, cocoa, toast and mineral notes.
The palate is elegant, soft, silky and fresh with great balance and a long, lingering finish. Red fruit, liquorice and aniseed with an aftertaste of herbs and balsamic.
