About Bodegas Tamaral La Carmina Albariño

Bodegas Tamaral La Carmina Albariño is a blisteringly fresh and zesty white wine from the Rias Baixas region of Spain. Racy and zippy but packed with stone fruits, hay, grapefruit, lemon/lime, passionfruit…all in a slightly creamy style that is immensely delicious and literally mouth-watering. Saline touches and minerality are also quite present, but not too marked. A pre-fermentative cold maceration was carried out in the press itself, after passing the grapes through a heat exchanger to reduce the temperature (below 8ºC), they were left to macerate for a few hours to extract aromas. The grapes are left to macerate for a few hours to extract aromas and then pressed directly. After racking for racking the day after maceration, the wine is fermented at 10-12ºC for at least two weeks.

About Bodegas Tamaral

The dream of Don Ricardo de Santiago, a native of Benavente (Zamora), came true in 1997 thanks to his efforts to promote a wine culture. The Golden Mile from the Ribera del Duero, in Peñafiel, witnessed the birth of Tamaral that same year. Initially the De Santiago Torío family, after many years of success in the textile sector, founded the wine company with a group of partners, including agronomists, or even the former president of the Oenological Station of Rueda, Pascual Herrera, who would in turn become the first winemaker of the winery. Later, Don Ricardo and Doña Carmen decided to take full control of the company and acquired 100% of it.

The history of Tamaral is intimately linked to the area of the river Órbigo, in Benavente (Zamora), the birthplace of Don Ricardo de Santiago. In fact, Tamaral gets its name from a woodland populated with ash trees on the bank of river Órbigo. A place called El Tamaral. The first harvest took place in the year Tamaral was created, although cultivation actually began in the 90s. And so began a life dedicated to wine.
