All young wines are hazy after fermentation due to tiny molecules such as proteins, tartrates, tannins and phenolics. Whilst natural and harmless, many people have come to expect and like their wine to be clear. To help the accelerate the clarification process, which if given time can settle naturally, winemakers use fining agents.
Some common fining agents include casein (a milk protein), albumin (egg whites), gelatin (animal protein) and isinglass (fish bladder protein).
Whilst fining with casein and albumin is usually acceptable by most vegetarians, all four cannot be considered vegans friendly as tiny traces of the fining agent may be absorbed into the wine during the fining process. Carbon, bentonite clay, limestone, kaolin clay, plant casein, silica gel, and vegetable plaques are all suitable alternatives.
Intense aromas of fresh herbs, cut grass, tropical fruits and mineral notes. The palate shows nice weight and the finish is suprisingly long for a Verdejo, this is a wine that punches above its price tag.
Original and slightly sweet white wine from late harvested Viura and Malvasia grapes.
A charming bouquet of tropical fruit and white flowers conveys its delicate sweetness.
Pale straw colour with luminous highlights. On the nose, mineral notes and floral sensations with a depth of green apples. Refreshing and balanced in the mouth with a pleasant, long-lasting acidity that adds a touch of zest to the finish.
Aroma: intense aroma white fruit and citrus with white floral hints.
Palate: fresh, fruity, round with a fine balance.
Gastronomy: recommended for assorted salads, pasta, rice, sushi, fish dishes and to pour by glass.
Lively fruit aromas with notes of peach and cirtus along with a hint of herbaciousness. a nervy and refreshing acidity counter balance the fruit and provide an elegant finish.
Very aromatic with fruity nuances of peach and custard apple as well as some mineral notes. Powerful on the palate, with well-balanced acidity and a long finish. If you have never had Albarino I highly recommend you try this one...a perfect example of this popular grape variety.
A soft golden colour in the glass. The taste is sumptuous with rich flavours of ripe apricot, brioche, honeycomb, crème brûlée and soft white flower notes found both in the nose and on the palate.
Ready to drink now although it will continue to evolve in the bottle.
Perfect with Iberian ham and foie gras.
The wine is aged 24 months in fine grain, 225-and 300-litre neutral American oak barrels with a light-to-medium toast.
