La Viña de Ayer Albillo Real is a white wine made by the Soto y Manrique winery in La Sierra de Gredos, D.O.P. Cebreros.
After working in the wine industry since 1994, Jesús Mª Soto decided to start this family project in 2012. Soto y Manrique is a small winery that bears both his name and that of his wife. They work with their own vineyards, all of which where planted in 1990.
Since the very beginning, Jesús Mª's goal was to produce wines that demonstrated the character of the soils they come from. Limestone, granite and sandy soils that can give the maximum freshness and elegance required, and utmost respect for the variety.
The results are simple, direct, very fresh, varietal wines, with an excellent quality to price ratio.
La Viña de Ayer Albillo Real is a wine made with Albillo grapes from old vineyards planted at an altitude of between 600 and 800 meters in granite sand and slate soils.
They are harvested by hand and placed in 25kg boxes. Before putting into containers and destemming, the grapes are cooled to 0°C. They ferment with native yeasts and their skins in concrete tanks. Once the fermentation is over, the grapes are pressed and allowed to settle, before being aged on fine lees for 3 months in stainless steel tanks.
