Wine maker notes
Cruz de Alba is made with grapes from vines over 20years old in the Pagos de los Hoyales, at the heart of Ribera del Dueros ‘Golden Mile. Manual harvest when the grapes attain optimum ripeness, fermentation according to traditional Bordeaux methods, and ageing in new French and American oak casks, provide this unique wine with elegance and distinction.

Food pairing
Drinking temperatures 17-18C (62-64F). Pairs well with red meat and pepper sauces, as well as with cured sausages or ham.
