Valautin Albillo

Vinos de Madrid (Gredos)

100% Albillo Real from small plots around the village of San Martin de Valdeiglesias. The various plots are planted on the three different kinds of granite found in the area. The wine is direct-pressed and ferments spontaneously in aged French oak where it sits for eight months before being bottled.

"The village white 2021 Valautín Albillo from San Martín de Valdeiglesias was produced with grapes from different vineyards, mostly old ones on granite soils. The bunches were pressed directly, and 50% of the juice fermented in 300- and 500-liter barrels and the rest in stainless steel. The wine matured with lees (without stirring them) in the fermentation vessels for 12 months. In this cooler year, the wine reached 14.4% alcohol. It's juicy and fresh, with tasty flavors, lightness, freshness and balance in a year when they got good yields (and have more vineyards for this wine). It's clean and deep, with a soft texture, focused flavors and a dry finish. 6,800 bottles were filled in September 2022."
