Gassås Wine: easy-to-drink wine

Huerta de Albalá is an innovative and ground‐breaking winery in an area traditionally associated with sherries. Vicente Taberner, the founder, had the dream of establishing a high quality winery in the area dedicated to red wines. He found a privileged location in Arcos de la Frontera, the south of Spain, Andalusia. 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 marked variation between day and night temperatures ideal for high quality red wines. The first vineyards were planted in 2000. The image of Huerta de Albalá shows the unique bond that Andalucia has with the horse, a traditional and noble animal of elegant appearance. Associated with the land, the Huerta de Albalá horse is taken from the equine figures of the Neolithic period.

The Huerta de Albalá winemaking philosophy is to deliver wines that express purity of varietal flavour, show elegance of structure with soft tannins whilst being rich, powerful and complex. The estate consists of 91 hectares of which 75 hectares is planted with 60% Syrah, 20% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Tintilla de Rota, a local variant of Graciano. The wide variety of soils and privileged location within a special micro‐climate, generated by the proximity of the reservoir of Bornos and the mountain range of Grazalema (1600 metres), offer ideal conditions for growing high quality grapes. The grapes benefit from long warm days and relatively cool nights during the ripening period. This dramatic change in temperature facilitates excellent phenolic ripeness and acidity levels. Furthermore we have an unusually high average rainfall for southern Spain of around 900mm due to the Atlantic and mountain influence.

Our barrique cellar consist of 1300 barriques of French Allier oak from several cooperages, such as Francois Freres and T5. The selection of the barriques is personally overseen by the owner, Vicente Taberner. Our wines are very exclusive, not just for their characteristics and the top quality, but also for the origin. We are in a wine region well‐known worldwide for Sherry wines. We have been pioneers in producing again in this area red wines, that were produced in the old times until the filoxera arrived to this area at the end of 19th century.

The winery was founded in 2.000, and we started commercializing our wines in 2007, being the first vintage 2005. At that time, when we first launched Taberner and Taberner N1, we were awarded by Robert Parker with 92 and 95 points respectively. Something quite unique taking into account that they were our very fist wines and vintage. Our range of wines consists of: • Barbazul range: white, rosé and red • Taberner 2013 • Taberner Nº1 2007 Our wines are single state wines. Our packaging is also very exclusive, with a well‐cared and beautiful design. We export at the moment to 30 countries. For us it would be great if you could consider become our partners and we establish a long term business relationship. With our wines, you will be offering to your customer a top quality unique wine, from an unique region, discovering to them a new and fantastic world.
