Our best grapes for the best broth.
Special Edition Albatros is a personally-created, exclusive wine for golfers.
This sea bird, “Albatros”, is used to describe the rarest golf score ever seen, the pinnacle of golfing difficulty. As opposed to the terms “Birdie” and “Eagle”, it originated in Britain and dates back to when steel-shafted clubs were brought in by Bobby Jones. It was these clubs that made an “Albatros” possible, unthinkable until then. The first of these strokes ever recorded was by John G. Ridland in September 1934, who scored two on a par-5 on the ninth hole of the Nashik course during the Western India Championship. Ridland suggested the name “Albatros”, as he was fascinated by how these birds could follow boats over very long distances.
Using Tempranillo grapes, picked by hand in 17 kg boxes and then selected, Albatros is made by starting with cold fermentation known as cryo-maceration that strengthens all the virtues of this special wine, aged for 6 months in new French oak barrels.
Visual: Intense cherry red colour with deep red glimmers. This wine has not been filtered to keep all its potential.
Nose: Its aromas include fully ripening fruit with typical grape harvest fragrances, notes of toasting and spices from the new barrel.
Mouth: It is long and slick in the mouth, dense and structured with smooth, mature tannins that give a feeling of plenitude and complexity.
We can tee off at a meal with the “youngest” and yet the most forceful of these wines, having spent 6 months in a new French oak barrel. In short, it is a powerful wine with great structure to be able to tackle a par-5 in 2 strokes.
However, the fruit really shines through here above the oak that, in turn, rounds off the wine and gives it the fleshiness, the bouquet and the elegance required by Rioja wines.
This is a wine that goes well with char-grilled or slow-cooked meat such as a stew or even game to harmonise the food and wine.
