Vinification Details

  • Through gentle maceration, expressive tannic compounds are released. Following fermentation at a controlled temperature, the wine is aged in American oak barrels for 12 months. It then rests in bottle for another 2 to 3 years to ensure a complete harmonised maturation is achieved.

History

  • Inspired by the clear, starry night sky, Félix Solís wanted to create a wine that would capture the pleasure-loving, life-affirming spirit of the Spanish people. He named it Albali after a star in the constellation of Aquarius. Viña Albali Reserva is made from a selection of only the best Tempranillo grapes chosen from old vineyards with small production. Having spent time ageing in oak barrels this variety produces wines with intense ruby red fruit aromas and hints of vanilla and spices.

Regional Information

  • Valdepeñas takes its name from the ancient city of the same name that lies in a sun-baked river valley dotted with small rocky formations - Val de peñas (Valley of Rocks). Located south of Castile-La Mancha in central Spain, it is almost completely encircled by the La Mancha Denominación de Origen (D.O.) and borders Andalusia to the south. The climate is extreme - temperatures reach 40 ºC in summer and up to -10 ºC in winter resulting in high quality grapes with good colour and freshness.

What's Happened

2 stars

I have purchased this in the past, different vintages and for everyday drinking it has been fine. Yet this vintage is like drinking wood and leather, no nose to speak of and little to commend it at any price, it could be a bad batch or just not very good, I do not recommend.

Value

4 stars

I buy this wine while in Spain and think that about £5.00 in UK is just about justifiable as I pay Euros 2.37 in Spain

Disappointed

1 stars

I like most Spanish wines and Tempranillo is one of my favourite grapes, but I found this wine to be flat and uninspiring. It tasted too old, with almost all the tannin oxidised, although it did not have the brown colouration normally associated with excessive age. Valdepenas wine used to be cheap and plentiful but mediocre. The region has worked hard to improve wine quality, but this example was not one of it's success stories. I decided to send back the remaining 5 bottles and replaced them with one of my favourites, TF Old Vines Garnacha. Tesco handled the return superbly. Congratulations to their CS policies.

Great Value wine

4 stars

Over the years I have developed a taste for this reliable wine. Each year there is a little difference in the Albali but generally it is reliably consistent. This "reserve" is excellent in comparison with last year's vintage.

Good Wine
