D.O.Ca. Rioja / Castillo de Albai
Castillo de Albai Viura White
Castillo de Albai White is made from the Spanish traditional grape variety known as Macabeo in most of Spain and as Viura in Rioja, where it is by far the most commonly grown white wine grape. Our experienced oenologist team has created a wine that preserves the grape's natural aromatic freshness.
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.
