Andalucia's most ambitious quality wine project yet is the innovative brainchild of Vicente Taberner, partner in the Sherry bodega Fernando de Castilla, a passionate wine enthusiast with a vision to produce top reds in the hills near Arcos de la Frontera, northeast of Cadiz. Huerta de Albalá is possibly the most significant development in Andalucian winemaking since the creation of Sherry!
Grapes are hand harvested at the beginning of September from vineyards surrounding the winery in Cadiz. This wine is made from a blend of 60% Syrah, 20% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Tintilla de Rota.
A complex nose of dried cherries, blackberries, cranberry and savoury balsamic notes. These characters continue onto the plalate along with sweet spice and black fruit. Complex and multi-layered with sufficient tannin and acidity to add structure and length. This powerful wine will stand up to fat steaks, rich peppery sauces and all manner of big meats.
