Rara Avis Albarín is a barrel-aged white wine made by Raúl Pérez with the Albarín variety in Castilla y León.

Born in El Bierzo, Raúl Pérez, who is one of today’s most acclaimed Spanish winemakers, knows this wine region better than anyone. However, he is not fixed to one particular region. He works wherever he finds exceptional terroirs that will produce wines with a unique personality.

Rare Avis Albarín comes from old vines aged between 70 and 90 years old and planted in clay-calcareous soils. They are cultivated using environmentally friendly agriculture to maintain the natural balance of the terroir, and when the grape reaches optimum ripeness, it is harvested manually.

In the winery, the Rara Avis Albarín grapes are destemmed and gently pressed and the resulting must is vinified in oak vats. It ferments spontaneously with native yeasts and without controlling the temperature. Finally the wine ages for 18 months in 5-year-old French oak foudres.

Raúl Pérez has given this single-variety Albarín a name that means “something exceptional”. The Rara Avis Albarín wine is difficult to find but will easily impress. An outstanding white.

Raúl Pérez is a philosopher of viticulture. He is also a consultant, apart from an oenologist and the most popular producer of unique wines in Spain. His name is known by a lot of good enthusiasts, and some of his wines are on the agenda of Robert Parker. However, his labels are produced in very small quantities, which makes his wine quite hard to find. He makes his own wines, wines for others and in collaboration with other people. He participates in family projects and other formal and informal ones. He breaks the rules, reaching the limits. He sometimes crosses the line and even crosses borders ... Not bad considering he wanted to become a doctor! Raúl Pérez Raúl Pérez is a philosopher of viticulture.
