A high altitude white wine of astonishing liveliness and harmony! A long and saline finish. A delight for the palate!more reviews

A surprising but absolutely magical white wine produced in the uplands of the Spanish Pyrenees!
Produced from vineyards at very high altitude, above 1,000 metres, in the Pyrenees this exceptional Taleia wine is based mostly on Sauvignon Blanc but also includes 20% Semillon, making a blend that's aged for 9 months in vats and then in barrels. This beautiful wine has a sharp, with an intense nose with aromas of citrus, white flowers and a touch of saline minerality. It's a classy wine that's incredibly juicy with a rare balance and harmony. The finish lingers and leaves the impression of an absolutely remarkable fullness. This wine is close on perfection and is already on the best tables!

CASTELL D'ENCUS

The vines cultivated at the highest altitude in Catalonia are those of the Castell d'Encus winery. In 2001, in order to find terroirs where the vines do not suffer from the effects of climate change, Raül Bobet chose landscapes of the Catalan Pyrenees (in the town of Talarn), located at an altitude that can reach 1,000 meters above sea level. Of the 95 hectares it owns, only 23 are planted with a wide range of varieties: white Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Sémillon and Albariño, and red Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Syrah and Petit Verdot. The rest of the property are lush woods that surround the vineyards. The wines are worked in accordance with the specifications of organic farming without being certified. These wines are of equal rarity and are already present in the four corners of the world on the most beautiful tables. Vinatis benefits from a nice allocation that we are happy to be able to present to our amateur clientele!
