Bodegas Clunia

The Clunia vineyards are located in the province of Burgos, Castilla y León at an altitude of between 900 and 1,100 metres above the sea level. Historically they have grown two grape varieties; three hectares of Syrah, and 10 hectares of Tempranillo, however, they have now added Malbec to their repertoire. The organic composition of this land is very poor, these are limestone, clay and sandy soils with pebbles and limestone loames which allow for an optimal drainage, thus limiting production considerably –between 3,000 and 4,000Kg/hectare. The singular character of this terroir results in wines with a unique personality, only changing slightly according to the subtle variations determined by the soil of each vineyard.

Tasting Notes

Bright yellow in appearance with hints of green and golden hues. On the nose there are fresh fruit aromas of apricot, pineapple and grapefruit with subtle floral and herbal hints. Fresh and elegant on tasting, with an ample fruit palate and a long, lingering fruity finish.

Food Matches

Spanish dishes like scallops, paella, jumbo salad are made to pair with Albillo white wines. Alternatively, ideal with savoury cheeses cured ham grilled or roast chicken or smoked salmon.
