About this WINE
One of the most exciting properties in the Catalan Pyrenees, Castell D’Encus is the brainchild of winemaker Raul Bobet, who developed these precipitous and eminently photogenic vineyards in the early 1990s. A plethora of varietals provide a fascinating backdrop to some ingenious winemaking, a lot of it combining ultra-modern vinification with the most ancient techniques, including ‘gaps’ that have been naturally carved into the rocks as make-shift fermentation vats. Everything here is dynamic and exciting and the wines, racy and energetic, repay the compliment admirably.
There are over 200 different grape varieties used in modern wine making (from a total of over 1000). Most lesser known blends and varieties are traditional to specific parts of the world.
