Albillo Criollo

Albillo Criollo. Aged in oak barrels. It is a single white varietal wine.

Grape variety:

Albillo Criollo 100%

WINEMAKING: It all starts with grapes on the vine. The best plots are chosen and the grapes are harvested once they are properly ripe and of the optimum acidity.

The must is fermented with its lees in medium toast French oak barrels. This process takes place during 6 months and the wine is stirred daily (a practice known as bâtonnage) to pick up oak barrels aroma better. This interaction with lees creates extraordinary aroma and flavor compounds, palate weight and texture in the wine.

About us

Company details

“Pampering our vineyards is our passion”
“Vega Norte wines is the result of treating our vineyards, which grow over 1000 meters above the sea level, with the greatest care so that they can give you the elixir of La Palma”
 
Short history
Heroic viticulture, the value of the union
The S.A.T. Bodegas Noroeste de La Palma was created in 1998, as a result of the effort and love for the vineyard of a small group of 50 vine growers of the northwest region of the island. In 1999 it started to commercialize its wines as belonging to La Palma D.O. (La Palma Appellation of Origin), under the name of Vega Norte. From that moment, the process of grape vine recovery and improvement of its cultivation techniques has never been stopped.

At present, we are a family of more than 240 vine growers who with our effort, care and respect to the environment, work hard to produce Vega Norte wines. These wines are of the highest quality and, moreover, faithfully reflect the idyllic scenery, the favorable climate and the ancient traditions of the northwest region of the island of La Palma.

Region and soil
The vineyards which grow higher than the clouds
Ancestral and unique in the world grape varieties, such as Listán Blanco, Albillo Criollo, Negramoll or Listán Prieto provide our wines with exceptional qualities.

Most of our vineyards are situated in the northwest region of the Island of La Palma, in the municipalities of Tijarafe, Puntagorda and Garafía. They grow on evolved volcanic and heterogeneous soils, which are generally sandy and clayish.

Due to its location at 1000 meters of altitude, the predominant climate is continental, which is characterized by a significant thermal variation between day and night. This fact means a very slow process of ripening and, as a result, perfectly balanced wines.

Its orientation to the northwest bordering deep ravines forms the production zone characterized by big slopes, where the red wine varieties occupy the sunny side, whereas the white wine ones are on the shadowy side.

Our pruning system is the traditional one with a very low percentage of mechanization of the processes, being the wise hand of the vine grower essential to obtain the grapes of high quality for our Vega Norte wines.
