Barbazul Huerta de Albala
Barbazul, Huerta de Albala - This blend of 50% Tintilla de Rota, 35% Syrah, 10% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon is aged for 5 months in one and two year old French Allier barrels creating a vibrant and very individual red. Aromas of red berries, citrus fruit, fig leaves and aromatic herbs fill your glass on their way to a rich and impressive finish. Its producer Huerta de Albala is possibly the most significant development in Andalucian winemaking since the creation of Sherry!
Andalucia's most ambitious quality wine project yet is the innovative brainchild of Vicente Taberner, partner in the Sherry bodega Fernando de Castilla, a passionate wine enthusiast with a vision to produce top reds in the hills near Arcos de la Frontera, northeast of Cadiz.
Great care has been taken with the building of a ‘chateau' style bodega using traditional local designs and materials. Historically an area where fruit and vines were planted, this particular site was chosen for it's sandy clay, chalky soils and microclimate, with the marked variation between day and night temperatures ideal for high quality red wines. The first vineyards were planted in January 2002. Much detailed experimentation is happening with Allier oak barriques of various toasts and coopers.
