D.O.Ca. Rioja / Castillo de Albai
Castillo de Albai Viura White
Between 8-10 º C
Bright straw yellow with touches of green. This wine has aromas of white flowers, ripe tangerines, banana, orange peel and citrus fruits with a subtle hint of passion fruit. On the palate, the wine is clean and silky with an ample aftertaste.
A good accompaniment to seafood, fish varieties such as cod in pil-pil sauce, or poultry cooked with vegetables.
Harvested at night in early October, cooler temperatures allow the grapes to retain their wonderful aromatic character. Run juice is left for 6 – 8 hours to macerate at a cool temperature to get the most out of its aromas. The fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks at 14-16º C. The wine making process includes careful handling at every stage. The result is a fresh and delicate wine.
