Characteristics of Akilia Clarete

Akilia Clarete is a rosé wine made in the claret style with the Palomino and Mencía varieties by the Akilia winery in the D.O. Bierzo, in Castilla y León, Spain.

 

The Akilia Clarete wine is made with grapes from the 2.5 hectare Fontario plot lying on a west-facing slope and with predominantly sandy-loam soils on quartzites and slate. The vines are 75 years old on average, with the most balanced grapes selected in the vineyard for the coupage.

 

The harvest is carried out manually in 12 kg boxes and when the grapes reach the winery, they undergo a carbonic maceration with stems. The resulting wine then ages for 4 months on its lees in stainless steel tanks.

 

A claret is a wine that is made like a red, but with a mixture of white and red varieties and short maceration periods, which produces a wine with a colour that puts it in the rosé category.  Akilia Clarete brings together two interesting varieties: the Mencía red and the Palomino white grape. Mario Rovira, who trained at the Akilia winery and is part of the new generation of Spanish winemakers, makes this wine as a tribute to this ancient production method that he has refined with the modern and innovative character that he is so well known for.

Tasting notes Akilia Clarete

Akilia Clarete 2019 is a wine that offers aromas of red berries on the nose, accompanied by herbal and floral nuances and a mineral touch. On the palate it is fresh and flavoursome. A claret with concentrated fruit, a dry finish and rustic charm.

Designation of Origin D.O. Bierzo

Bierzo wine is on the rise. It is a region defined by its small scale work, with plots scattered around, very old vines, artisan work of the small scale wineries, and the character of their principal variety, the Mencía grape, which produces fresh, fruity and delicious wines. Although the region is well known mostly for its red wines, it also produces white and rosé wines. If the red wines here are defined by the Mencía variety, then the white wines here are defined by the Godello. Godello grape has great aromatic potential, as well as an excellent balance between alcohol and acidity.  Despite the great potential of El Bierzo, its rise in the wine world would not have been possible without two people: Raúl Pérez and Ricardo Pérez. Two great winemakers who in little time have been able to produce critically acclaimed wines from the Bierzo region.
