A beautifully balanced sweet wine that will completely change your idea of what the Jurancon has to offer. It's got an amazing backbone of acidity that stops it from being cloying and beautiful delicate stone fruit and floral flavours. Absolutely delicious!
Jurancon has always been capable of producing sensational and distinct wines but for one reason or another they have not really reached that level. However, this winemaker nestled in the foothills of the Pyrenees has since taken Jurancon to the next level. We saw the winemaker Franck at Wine Paris last week. Regardless of being admittedly ‘tired’ from the night before, Franck lit up our day with his down to earth, enthusiastic and welcoming attitude to wine, life and others. His personality is echoed in the Castera wines. Exceptional quality with humility. 4th generation winemaker Franck has made wines for over 10 years around the world, where he picked up many ideas to improve the quality of wine back home. He gingerly introduced them to his father, and now has taken over the key decisions in the vineyards and winery.
