Castillo de Albai Rosé is made from Grenache grapes. Grenache is the most prestigious variety for rosé wines in Rioja.
Spain’s most internationally famous wine region is renowned for creating top quality wines with exceptional ageing ability. It lies in northern Spain, by the side of the River Ebro from which the region’s name derived. Elegance and poise is the hallmark of the wines shaped in this ancient region. The variety of its soils, together with the combination of modern and traditional growing practices allow winemakers to produce a wide range of wines that exhibit different personalities, always within the framework that their long-established Qualified Denominación de Origen demands from them.
Powerful strawberry pink with aromas of strawberries and currants. This is a clean, frank, elegant and refreshing wine which is generously fruity and has a good structure in the mouth.
An ideal complement to pasta, white meat, seafood and salads.
Between 10-12 º C
Only the best Grenache grapes are selected for this wine. The grapes undergo controlled maceration for 3 to 9 hours, which allows the skins to remain in contact with the must until the wine acquires its characteristic rosé colour. Fermentation takes place at controlled temperature between 15 and 16º C.
