What You Need To Know
The vast meseta of central Spain
is home to an immense number of ancient vineyards but only
a handful of acclaimed wineries. That’s changing quickly, as a new
generation of winemakers are making terrific wines from its
previously overlooked zones. This lovely white is a case in point:
It comes from four young winemaking friends—Laura Robles,
Javier García, David Moreno and David Velasco—who sought out
a cache of old-vine Albillo in the foothills of the Sierra de Gredos,
the mountain range southwest of Madrid. Albillo can be neutral
and bland, but by fermenting the wine at a cool temperature and
aging it in neutral French oak, the quartet show the grape’s
complex, aromatic side.

Silky and very dry,
with long-lasting apple and
white tea notes.
