2015 KATAS ALBARIÑO

Rias Biaxas

This 100% Albariño from Alberto Orte was fermented and aged in stainless steel at low temperatures to maintain freshness. Aromas of citrus flowers with stone fruits and bright minerality on the palate.

2014 KATAS TEMPRANILLO

100% Tempranillo from Rioja, but Rioja cannot appear on the label because of DO restrictions against wine exported in bulk. The moderately warm days and cool nights allow the grapes to ripen slowly on clay and sandy limestone soils, bringing bright aromas and concentrated flavors. Post-harvest, the grapes soak cold for 5 days at 45°F, to enhance aromas, color and flavor. Following fermentation, maceration is extended for 10 days to extract all beneficial color and tannins. The wine is aged in stainless steel to emphasize the pure, young flavor of the Tempranillo grape. 13.5% ALC.

KATAS PALOMINO SHERRY

A fortified wine from the Andalusia region of Spain from the Manzanilla Sanlucar de Barrameda DO. Made with 100% Palomino grapes that were fortified to 15% ALC. This 5 year old Manzanilla Sherry was created by 3 criaderas. The vines were planted in 1998 in Albariza soil at an elevation of 230 feet.
