Bodegas Ramón Bilbao - Enotria&Coe


The first sparkling Albariño. Made with the Champenoise Méthode the result is tasty and creamy and not missing the varietal notes.  

WINEMAKING: The hand sorting of the grapes at reception and racking to the press machine where a 40% of the must was obtained and carried to the fermentation vats. A slow fermentation at low temperatures carried on for several weeks. Maximum care in the rest of the process: racking, bottling, etc to preserve the richness of aromas and intensity of all the small notes. SECOND FERMENTATION AND AGEING The second fermentation at 12-13ºC and ageing over the lees  took place in the bottle up to the disgorgement  

TASTING: Golden yellow with lemmon green hues. On the nose it shows fine, complex and expressive. First it releases bottle ageing notes and a sea water, eucalyptus and white fruit in the background that remind of albariño grape. A toasted bread and almond kernel character pervade. On the mouth it is broad, tasty and fresh. In the aftertaste the typical albariño notes reappear  with a pleasant and crispy aftertaste.
