for this grape?

Airén is a white Vinifiera variety, and is by acreage the most widely grown grape in the world. Native to Spain, this grape represents nearly 30% of grapes grown. However, these plantings are typically at low density, and the resulting wines can be bland and overly acidic. As such its principle use is in the manufacture of brandy, and many plantings are being uprooted in favor of planting red wine varieties. The varietal is most abundant in the DOs of Valdepenas and La Mancha.
Flavors: Apple, Citrus, Nut, Rose
Region(s): La Mancha

    the bottle boasts "a careful selection of the best Airen grapes". Aromas of fresh fruit and hints of fresh herbs prepare your palate for the refreshing, clean, well balanced flavor and moderate acidity. Pairs perfectly with fish, seafood and rices dishes (like paella) Read More

  • Iranzo Fields Albero Sparkling White 2010


    We normally don't care for most sparkling wines, but this is a very nice organic version. The flavor is cool and crisp, without being overly dry. The subtle fruitiness gives this sparkling wine just enough complexity to make it pleasureful. Read More
