Limited stock
Red cherry in colour with violet tones. Complex on the nose, this wine displays aromas of red berries, fig and aromatic herbs. In the mouth Barbazul is warm, powerful and flavoursome with balanced acidity and impressive structure leading to a persistent finish.

Producer Details
Andalucia's most ambitious quality wine project yet is the innovative brainchild of Vicente Taberner, partner in the Sherry bodega Fernando de Castilla, a passionate wine enthusiast with a vision to produce top reds in the hills near Arcos de la Frontera, northeast of Cadiz. Great care has been taken with the building of a chateau style bodega using traditional local designs and materials. Historically an area where fruit and vines were planted, this particular site was chosen for its sandy clay, chalky soils and microclimate, with the marked variation between day and night temperatures ideal for high quality red wines. The first vineyards were planted in January 2002. Much detailed experimentation is happening with Allier oak barriques of various toasts and coopers. The estate covers 91 hectares, 75 of which are now under vine - 60% Syrah, 20% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Tintilla de Rota (a local variant of Graciano). Huerta de Albala is possibly the most significant development in Andalucian winemaking since the creation of Sherry!

In the Vineyard
Grapes are hand harvested at the beginning of September from vineyards surrounding the winery in Arcos de la Frontera, northeast of Cadiz.

In the Winery
Fermentation of the Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot takes place in stainless steel. Tintilla de Rota is fermented in wooden 500 litre fermentation vats. The wine is then aged for five months in one and two year old French Allier oak barrique with two rackings before being bottled. 190,000 bottles produced.


Grapes: Tintilla de Rota 50%, Syrah 30%, Merlot 20%
