2018 Maestro Tejero 'Lovamor' Albillo

Sierra De Gredos, Spain

With 100% Albillo (a Spanish native grape) hand-picked on the last week of September 2018, destemmed and crushed for a seven-day fermentation on skins in stainless and in one 2000 litre barrel. No additions were made aside from a little bit of sulphur to avoid excessive oxidation in the juice. A very personable and succulent white, appears slightly cloudy on the eyes due to no filtration and natural stabilisation, but has white flowers, straw, stone fruit, quince on the nose. In the mouth oily with exceptional freshness and an elegant saline note. Uber uber drinkable!

About the maker

Beginning his solo career in 1998, Alfredo Maestro produced wines according to the rules of the area and techniques accepted by majority of Spanish producers until one day he decided to begin making wines that spoke of the land of which they came.

After several warm seasons, the rain finally came to Alfredo in 2018. A cool vintage resulted in bumper crops and freshness to all the wines. With his vineyards in the Ribera del Duero DO, Alfredo Maestro Tejero prefers to label his wines under the Vino de la Tierra de Castilla y León denomination instead. Alfredo sources from different vineyards and some vines planted between over 100 years ago. The vineyards are often at different altitudes (770-1000 metres), containing different soils types (limestones, clay, etc.) and orientations which gives way for the ability to create really unique but terroir driven wines.
