Alba y Barro 2021


A sparkling blend from two plots - 20-year old Beba and Alarije (yes these are the grapes) from Tierra de Barros (in Extremadura on clay-limestone soils) and Palomino Fino from Sanlúcar de Barrameda (Andalusia on albariza de barajuelas soils) from a hundred-year-old vineyard.

Palomino is picked first and kept cold until the others are harvested, joint pressing at 50% extraction, cooling and settling, alcoholic fermentation with native yeasts in small 500L tanks, bottling at a density of 1005 (for bubbles). 9 months aging. Alarije is a terpene variety that gives the wine an ideal protein level for autolytic aging under carbonic pressure.
