- WINE CHILLERS
Albarino is a grape/wine that should be enjoyed as much for its aromatics as for its flavors. Its aromatic intensity is a result of the higher levels of two aromatic compound groups called terpenes and thiols. Lifted aromas of lemons, limes, pear, grapefruit, honeysuckle, nectarine, and occasionally and orange zest supported by subtle smells of wet granite and river stones. When you taste Albariño, you’ll instantly delight in its mouth-watering acidity, somewhat weighty mid-palate, saltiness, and long tingly finish that often has a subtle bitter note (almost like grapefruit pith).
This wine is lemon yellow with greenish reflections. On the nose, it shows citris notes with prevalent lime, tangerine and floral hints with a herbal undertone. Fresh on the palate, well balanced and with ripe citris notes.
Harvested by hand during the first hours of the day at its optimum ripening stage for preserving its aromas and freshness. Crafted using hand-sorted grapes during the harvest.
Primary fermentation is driven by temperature- controlled stainless steel tanks in optimal conditions to preserve its potential. Secondary fermentation is part malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Finally, we proceed to age 3 months in stainless steel tanks with lees stirring for enhancing its aromas and increasing the volume in the palate.
