Malolactic fermentation, no destemming, stainless steel tanks

The Almate from Alfredo Maestro is a delicious Tempranillo. It didn’t age, it went from a stainless steel tank directly into the bottle. It is young but already in great shape, powerful, with nice tannins and a pleasant nuttiness. Notes of blackberry, lots of caramel and, please don’t laugh, but there is a flavour in there which reminds us of ‘sour cream onion Pringles’! We’d love to know if anyone out there also tastes that or our buds suddenly got loony.

Alfredo Maestro

Natural wine the “Maestro” way

Alfredo MaestroSpain’s “natural wine Rockstar” has risen to fame in the natural wine scene way beyond Spanish boarders.  This comes as no surprise because in his case “Nomen est Omen”. The “Maestro” in his name speaks volumes of his skills in both his 9 hectares of vineyards and in the bodega, the wine cellar. His vineyards are located in Ribera del Duero, his home region in the province of Castilla-Leon in Northern Spain, and in Navalcarnero near Madrid. In both areas he grows and produces low interventionorganic, magnificent natural wines, with labels so original and funny, we like to keep the bottles on shelves just for decoration.
