This is a white from the Albillo Reale grape which is an indigenous grape to Gredos. I had the 2016 five years ago while visiting the winery in the mountains west of Madrid. This bottle was found at the Barcelona Wine Bar in Charlotte NC. Golden in color, a bit cloudy. The nose has minerals, saline, beeswax and slight thyme note. Creamy texture.
This is made from the Albillo grape just a bit east of Madrid in Manchuela. Light white gold in color. The nose is interesting. Waxy with chamomile tea and slight lemony notes. On the palate, this is a fuller bodied white. Slightly oily texture but lacking a lot of acidity. Nice apple notes with some minerality. Also a cinnamon quality on the finish which is interesting. Long finish. A very enjoyable wine and a nice change of pace. This will work well with a wide variety of foods. No idea on how well this grape ages.
