The Castronuño banks of the river Duero form a natural habitat for Heron to nest as well as also being an area where the grapes used for our Viña Albali Sauvignon Blanc grow exceptionally well.

  • Region

    Rueda is a wine producing region in the heart of the Iberian Peninsula, on the high plateau of Castile and León, right between two of Spain’s most famous red-wine producers: Ribera del Duero and Toro, and just on the North-West of Madrid. The river Duero flows through this region from East to West. Rueda was the first Denominación de Origen to be certified in the Region of Castile and León (1980). This high plateau is characterised by a typical continental climate featuring long cold winters, a brief spring season, and dry harsh hot summers.

  • Technical Information

    Grapes are picked at their optimum ripeness to obtain a well-balanced wine with just the right levels of sweetness and acidity. The wine undergoes a short period of cold maceration that lasts for around 6 hours. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 14-16 ºC in stainless steel tanks for about 15-17 days. It is followed by a short period of maturation, resulting in an elegant, fresh and fruity wine.
