Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Saktih is a red wine produced by the winery Castell d'Encús in Talarn (Lleida), D.O. Costers del Segre.

Castell d'Encús is the personal project of Raül Bobet. Located in the Pyrenean area of ​​Pallars Jussà (Lleida), in a mountainous area with an altitude of 800 to 1000 metres, the farm has a chapel and some stone presses from the 12th century from Castell d'Encús, which uses them to make some of its wines. The orientation is mainly South-West with good protection from the cold northern winds.

Raül Bobet has an honest philosophy, based on maximum care of the vineyard, passion, the utmost dedication and respect for nature. The winery does not use any type of herbicide or pesticide in its agriculture. Its aim is to produce a limited amount of bottles entirely come from the fruit of their vines.

Saktih is a red wine made with Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon from the winery’s vineyards located at around 1000 metres of altitude.

The grapes are manually harvested and placed in 10-kg boxes. The wine has been entirely fermented in the stone presses of the farm with native yeasts. After the fermentation has ended, it is aged for 24 months in French oak barrels, where it also goes through the malolactic fermentation.

Only 860 bottles.

Pictures and situation 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.
