45 years. Old vines have very long roots and so can explore the soil and extract many
different nutrients and substances (more than young vines) and so make a richer and
more complex must and wine.
Farming: No pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, fungicides, or chemical fertilizer
No use of copper or sulphur.
No ploughing. All plants, grasses, flowers allowed to grow.
Each bottle is its own story, something to be appreciated and respected. This is an aromatic Albillo Real with fruit sourced from bush vineyards in the Sierra de Gredos mountains, near El Tiemblo (Avila). Fermented in stainless steel tanks and aged in used barriques. Two days skin contact. The terroir here is awesome: steep hills, wide temperature excursions, old bush vines planted on poor soils marked by sand and pebbles. Vineyards are totally untouched by pesticides, insecticides, herbicides, fungicides. Basically this wine is made only with fermented grape juice. Please enjoy this limited edition Alba (only 3.000 bottles produced) with friends while listening to your favorite indie rock bands. Serve it pretty loud.
