Hacienda Albae Merlot

Following 40 years of growing grapes, the Carpintero family decided it was time to turn their amazing fruit into their own wines. In 2001, they began experimenting and a few years later they were convinced they had the right quality fruit for the wines they wanted to make. The winery was built in the heart of La Mancha, surrounded by their own vineyards and is one of the most beautiful and technologically advanced wineries in the region. No expense has been spared to ensure maximum quality, their very clear goal. State of the art fermentation tanks so they can vinified each parcel seperately. Their own machine harvesters allows them to pick at the perfect point of ripeness, which passes quickly here in the hot dry planes of central Spain. A stunning and well equipped barrel cellar provides the finishing touch.

The Hacienda Albae Merlot is a result of an acquired knowledge of our climate and our vineyards. It is the first red grape variety to be harvested therefore it is mandatory to collect it in the exact moment of ripeness when tannins are ripe, and the sugars and acidity are balanced. The wine is aged in new, medium toast French oak barrels for six months.

Tasting Note:
Ripe red fruits on a background of toasted oak. The palate is elegant, tasty, persistent and balanced. Its ageing time in French oak blend together notes of fresh fruits and spices.
