Alejairén Crianza 2020

Once production of red wines from Castile-La Mancha had been consolidated, the winery began to produce its white wine—the best Spanish white wine according to the Oenological Association of Salamanca. 

Familia Fernández Rivera used a special and nearly forgotten local variety: Airén. Its first vintage dates back to 2007.

WINERY: El Vínculo
BRAND: Alejairén Crianza
VARIETY: 100% Airén
LOOK: Gold colour, clear and shiny.
SMELL: Intense, balsamic and very aromatic. It has aromas of ripe fruit overlaid with spicy notes that show the complexity and majesty of this wine.
TASTE: Dense, unctuous and long. The perfect balance between fruit and wood, which makes this wine an atypical and different white wine. Freshness in the mouth with a long aftertaste with fruity aromas.
CONSUMPTION: Optimal time for consumption. Its method of production lets it age and develop in the bottle.
PAIRINGS: Perfect for accompanying appetisers, such as Iberian ham and foie gras, going well with rice dishes, pasta and fish as the main course, and even with dessert.
