• Ulterior Albillo Real

    A “royal” and gastronomic white wine.

    Albillo Real is a grape variety recovered from those that before the phylloxera could be found usually in Castilla-La Mancha and neighboring provinces to the north. A low yielding, short cycle and resistant to drought  grape variety, which is one of the first to be  harvested in the region. A small percentage of the wine is aged in French oak barrels of 600 liters and the rest, as our ancestors did, in earthenware jars (clay) of 300 arrobas (about 5000 liters). After bottling it has been in our underground cellars for more than 12 month.

    Variety: ALBILLO REAL

    Estate: El Romeral

    Parcela: 7 y 9

    To be served: 9-12º C

    Aging potential: Its acidity and complexity guarantees a long aging, a cult white wine.

    Tasting note: Lemon yellow with golden reflections, dense. Intense complex nose, mineral with  red apple and aromatic herbs, hints of cinnamon in a background of quince, an elegant evolution. On the palate it is a wine with nerve, with volume. It is unctuous and the medium and persistent acidity gives it expressiveness. In the aftertaste, memories of aromatic herbs and the red apple come back and it invites to a second sip to show the character and prove it is a different wine.

    Food pairing: Its acidity and structure is ideal for small game meat, scrambled mushrooms, pasta with white sauces. Foie will make a perfect match and you can also try oysters and barnacles, if that is your preference. Your audacity will mark your limits.
