ALBADA is made of 100% Garnacha coming from very old vines. Most of them are over 50 years old and many of them are up to 100 years old, thanks to the enormous dedication of the grape growers, generation after generation.
After careful selection of the Garnacha grapes proceeding from 50 year-old bush vines, the grapes were destalked and crushed. The fermentation took place for 15 days at a maximum temperature of 28ºC. After the fermentation in concrete vats, the wine had an extended maceration for 2 weeks. The must was pressed and the wine spend 8 months in American Oak barrels (a blend of new barrels and 1-year old barrels).
Origin of the Name ALBADA:
The word "Albada" has two meanings: one refers to the ancient songs performed by the local vine growers, while the other means dawn. The circular art work of the label was designed by the artist Aitor Tellechea. It is an etching that represents the "Garnacha from Aragon", place of origin of this grape variety which is now spread worldwide. The circle means perfection, well-balanced power; from the beginning to the end. The course of life that begins again every season for our wine, in the vineyard.
