Bodegas Arrayan Albillo Real 'Granito'

, 2018

Spain White

Sierra de Gredos Cebreros DO 75cl

The DO for Granito is Cebreros, which makes only a tiny portion of Spainís volume. Over half the vines in the DO are 60-90 years old, which makes this plot of Albillo which is approaching its 70th year, something of a newcomer. The grapes are handpicked and the whole bunches undergo a gentle foot treading and remain on skins for 3 days in stainless steel tanks which helps texture and aromatics. Then spontaneous fermentation takes place in stainless steel before ageing for 7-8 months ageing on lees in clay amphora. No malolactic helps preserve the fresh acidity.
Citrus nose, lemon leading to pineapple. Rich and weighty on the palate, lemon and pineapple with laser like precision, minerally, textural and long, gently creamy too. Such a fascinating wine!
