Characteristics of Acusp

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.

Designation of Origin D.O. Costers del Segre

Winery Castell d'Encús

When we refer to the DO Costers del Segre we think of wines with a continental character, which in some respects is true, but extensive replantation of international grape varieties means that the majority of wines produced here lack a geographical or territorial trademark, even though the vast majority of the wines are technologically perfect. However, there are currently wineries such as Mas Blanch i Jové, Costers del Sio, L’Olivera, Lagravera and Thomas Cusiné, among others, who concentrate their effors on producing wines with what are considered varieties native to the region. However, the majority of this region is still dominated by classic international varieties.

Imágenes y situación D.O. Costers del Segre

It is located in the Pyrenees area of Pallars Jussà (Lleida) in a mountainous area at an altitude of 800 to 1000 meters. The orientation is primarily SO with good protection from the cold north winds. The intention of the winery is producing a limited number of bottles from the whole fruit of their vines.
