PARDEVALLES ALBARIN 2013 (D.O. Tierra de Leon)
Winery: VINEDOS Y BODEGA PARDEVALLES
Type: 100% Albarin
The Albarin is a grape variety not yet well known & not to be confused with the ever popular Albarino (no relation). It was on the verge of extinction until Rafael Alonso at Pardevalles decided to push for its development. Albarin produces extremely fresh aromas of stone fruits & exotic tropical notes with subtle herbal undertones and orange blossom. Bright & crisp acidity meet a full bodied persistent white.
Soil: Alluvial clay & stones
2700 Feet elevation
Mechanical night harvest
Fermented in small conical shaped tanks; temperature controlled & using only indigenous yeasts
90 POINTS STEPHEN TANZER, INTERNATIONAL WINE REVIEW: Light gold. Pungent aromas of nectarine, melon and white flowers, with a stony nuance adding lift. Silky and penetrating, offering juicy orchard and pit fruit flavors and a bracing hint of lemon zest. Puts on weight with air and finishes with very good clarity and length and chalky mineral bite.
