The Rara Avis is another creation from Raúl Pérez, with this wine he shows a different profile of wine working with the almost extinct indigenous white grape variety, Albarín, from the south of the province of León and Asturias, Northwest of Spain. He makes the wine under the appellation of Vinos de la Tierra de Castilla y León, grapes are coming from very old vines, almost centenarian vines from a vineyard located at 790 meters above sea level with soils composed of limestone and alluvial rocks. Fermentation and ageing take place in a large old French oak Foudres for 18 months.
Raúl Pérez is regarded as among the most talented and innovative winemakers, almost a legend within the Spanish wine making world and abroad. The collaboration with other wine-makers and wineries have also proved a great success. He works with the autochthonous varietals of the area. He makes amazing wines in different appellations in Galicia and elsewhere, always small and selected productions. To get hold of his wines is not that easy as they are probably one of the most sought-after.
Tasting notes: Opens with an intense aromatic nose of predominately citrus aromas of lemon peel and grapefruit, floral notes and a slight herbaceous vein. Good frutal weight and refreshing mouthfeel, lively acidity, citrus-fruit flavors on a lengthy finish.
Notes: It is recommended to let the wine breathe in the glass for a short while. Suitable for Vegans & Vegetarians.
