Tasting Notes

This is crafted using the rare white grape Albillo, harvested from 100-year-old vineyards situated just outside the Ribera del Duero DO. Fermented in large foudres, it’s bright, pure and mineral with white flowers, citrus and pear fruit, and a hint of struck match character that adds interest. The palate is rich with textured white fruits and layers of minerals. Long finish.

The Producer

Ermita del Conde

Ermita del Conde was established with the purpose of safeguarding the local land's history by reviving century-old tempranillo vineyards that were planted before the devastating phylloxera outbreak. Their mission also includes preventing the extinction of the well-known Albillo Mayor grape variety in the region.

Their small vineyards, known as ‘majuelos,’ are situated at elevations ranging from 943 to 1,012 meters. These vineyards are scattered across various local spots, nestled in valleys amidst wild, untouched terrain. Given the region's harsh climate, these vineyards endure severe spring frosts and scorching summer temperatures.

Furthermore, the exceptionally infertile soils, characterized by a blend of limestone, sand, and rocky patches, contribute to the production of wines that exhibit intense flavours and aromas, reflecting the unique characteristics of their terroir.
