Availability: In stock
A wildly interesting Spanish white wine produced by star winemaker Raúl Pérez, Los Arrotos del Pendón Albarín is a varietal Albarín Blanco made from from over 50-year-old vines planted in clayey-rocky soils in the village of Villamañán, at an altitude over 800 metres above sea level.
This grapes of this variety indigenous to the region of Castilla y León were picked by hand and fermented with native yeasts in 500-litre oak barrels. After that, the vinification process of the white wine Los Arrotos del Pendón Albarín 2019 was given an unexpected twist. Indeed, this white wine was aged under a veil of flor -like a Sherry or a Vin Jaune from Jura- for a period of 4 to 5 months.
A truly singular wine for the combination of a rare variety and a unusual ageing process, this white wine from Tierra de León bears witness to the talent of the great Raúl Pérez.
The wine Los Arrotos del Pendón Albarín is bright yellow with some greenish tinges.
This varietal Albarín Blanco is fascinating. Mineral notions and aromas of beeswax, tangerine peel and white flowers, with remembrances of wild herbs and citrus.
A wine that defies convention, this varietal Albarín of Raúl Pérez has a phenomenal acidity and an excellent balance. Both intellectually stimulating and very moreish, with a long, mineral finish reminiscent of thyme and citrus.
