Albillo mayor. DO Ribera del Duero
A true enigma
A reinterpretation of Albillo that stands out in a land devoted to reds.
KORDE Blanc symbolises the rewards of boldness and a passion for understanding wine-making better.
A wine that you feel before you raise your glass. Its aroma envelops you and its creaminess becomes a caress in your mouth.
“A delicious older Albillo with a creamy edge of lemon peel and minerals. Dry and medium-bodied in texture, cut by fresh, creamy acidity”
- KORDE Blanc is an unctuous wine made from Albillo Mayor and other indigenous white grape varieties, which grow hidden in our oldest Tempranillo vines.
- Our first white is an inimitable wine that surprises and captivates everyone who discovers it. KORDE Blanc represents the texture of a soil in a glass. It is an enveloping wine, with abundant aromas of flowers and fruits and an amalgam of complex flavours that give it a creamy, persistent finish.
- The very small number of white grapes that grow in our vineyards means KORDE Blanc is made from a blend of two consecutive vintages which, after careful vinification, are aged in French oak barrels.
Tasting notesAgeing: 2 winters Keep: 15 years
Clean, sparkling straw yellow.
Aromas of citrus skins such as grapefruit and some white flowers on the nose, complemented by notes of ageing.
Powerful mouthfeel for a white with great texture and an earthiness kept clean by a deep acidity, resulting in a long, refreshing wine.
KORDE Blanc is made from Albillo Mayor and other indigenous white grape varieties which grow hidden in our oldest Tempranillo vines, making production particularly limited.
Vine-growing and harvest
The white grapes are selected and harvested before the Tempranillo. The grapes are harvested by hand first thing in the morning, as the cold of dawn keeps them fresh and the skins firm until they reach the winery. In the field, we carry out an initial selection of grapes in 14-kilo boxes and, once in the winery, a second check is made, to keep only the best bunches.
Our work in the fields is characterised by utmost respect for the environment combined with biodiversity and the incorporation of the best-established biodynamic practices. We are committed to a model of sustainable vine-growing to make our wines a true reflection of the terroir from which they originate, with the grape taking centre stage.
Wine-making and ageing
KORDE Blanc is the result of a blend of two consecutive vintages. After fermentation in stainless steel tanks, the wine is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels and is then mixed with the following vintage, fermented in barrels on its fine lees for six months.
The wine is ready to be enjoyed as soon as you have it in your hands, but spending 1 or 2 years in the bottle will do it good if you want to drink it at its best.
We recommend serving the wine at 8-9º.
Pairing | KORDE Blanc
“Anyone who has the privilege of opening a bottle of KORDE Blanc is in for a true puzzle. This complex wine seems to speak to you from different places, perhaps the converging energies of the two vintages that have been blended together to create it…. Anyone who has the pleasure of drinking it can enjoy it with any of the delicacies our country offers us. It is sufficiently rugged to accompany roast lamb or suckling pig. But it is also so elegant that it will entirely respect the finesse of a sole meunière”
