Product Description
Details

Known mostly for its red wines, Bodegas Valduero presents the new vintage of García Viadero Albillo, a varietal Spanish white wine entirely made from Albillo, an interesting, lesser-known local white grape from Ribera del Duero.

Coming from a 10-hectare estate located at 900 metres above sea level, planted with young vines under 20 years of age, the grapes were picked by hand and cold-macerated before being pressed.

The fermentation of this white wine from Ribera del Duero lasted two weeks. It was carried out in stainless steel tanks and under a strict temperature control. García Viadero Albillo 2019 was not filtered or stabilized before its bottling.

Production around 32,000 bottles.

Appearance

The Spanish white wine García Viadero Albillo shows a pale straw colour with hints of green at the rim.

Nose

Quite complex, this rare Albillo white wine from Ribera del Duero conveys original notes of grapefruit, melon and pineapple, nuanced by white flowers -jasmine-, some herbal remembrances, and some refreshingly mineral anb bitter undertones.

Palate

Showing a good equilibrium between fruit and freshness, this white wine from Bodegas Valduero suggests some understated tropical notes, combined with some mineral and earthy nuances, with very firm backbone of acidity. Very fresh and easy to drink, with a smooth texture and a long, elegantly dry finish with an aftertaste of citrus and fennel.

Our personal opinion

Vintage after vintage, this García Viadero Albillo 2019 keeps making a impression on us. Though it is practically unknown to wine lovers, Albillo is a grape to be taken seriously.
