A brilliant nose, pure finesse, with sweet, mellow aromas. It displays all its strength and character in the mouth. ABC
Alunado is Vol. 0 of our Bootleg Wines collection. Distinctive homage wines in a very limited edition. Alunado was the original wine and with it we pay homage to the moon and the stones that brought our dream to fruition.
Straw in colour with golden glints. On the nose it is distinctive for its fresh fruity aroma of pineapple. Fine lees, creamy oak and fine chocolate. In the mouth it is flavourful, creamy, rounded, fruity and has a delectable hint of vanilla and toffee.
The individual character of Alunado derives from the way it is made. In fact, this wine is only put on the market when the harvest has been exceptional. Not without good reason has Alunado always been among Spain’s best wood-aged Chardonnays. The grapes undergo a very gentle destemming, separating them from the stalk ready for pressing with the greatest delicacy. Only the highest quality must, the free-run juice from a very gentle first pressing, is used for Alunado. Once the must is clear and ready to be converted into wine, the process of transformation begins in small capacity tanks. Once fermentation has begun, the wine is transferred to barriques in which the fermentation and subsequent ageing are completed.
