Montecillo Singladuras Albariño
Produced from 100% Albariño grapes. Perfect with fish, seafood and spicy dishes.
CRAFTING & AGEING
40-year-old bush vines. Hand harvesting. Maceration with the skins in small tanks at a controlled temperature over 4 days, before gentle pressing and fermentation at 16ºC over three weeks. Once the wine has been assembled, expert and delicate work with the lees gives body and weight on the palate, making the wines long-lasting and more complex. A very noble variety, which packs a punch and improves after a period spent resting in the bottle, in this case a minimum of three months.
Look: Lemon yellow with greenish highlights, clean and bright.
Aroma & palate: A pure sensation of fruit on the nose, ripe peach wrapped in citrus notes and a finish of ripe pear. On the palate, its enthralling acidity and great extract make a powerful impact upon entry. It then bursts with an explosion of delicious fruit: peach, attractive citrus notes and a lovely silkiness.
The characteristic saline note of great wines made with this variety, which makes them so good with food, makes a clear appearance on the finish. A very seductive wine.
SERVING & FOOD PAIRING
The clean flavours of Albariño are very versatile and partner well with typical local dishes such as Galician style octopus or scallops. It is ideal with white meat and vegetables, seafood, clams, oysters and oven baked fishes.
Serving temperature:: 9ºC - 12ºC
