      All about airen

      What is airén wine?

      Rising from Spain is airén wines, products of airén grapes, which are famous for their pale color and dominant apple, banana and grapefruit flavors. The winemakers give them moderate acidity and alcohol concentrations ranging from 11.5% to 13.5%. They're generally soft and appeal more to wine enthusiasts with an easy drinking style. You will experience a light and flabby taste on the palate at first that later advances to a detached tingly acidic feeling. The production process involves the use of stainless steel tanks with modern vinification practices and temperature control fermentation to create a crisp dry and refreshing wine enjoyable while young. Serve it within 45 and 55 degrees Fahrenheit.

      What goes into airén wine?

      Airén grapes come from the La Mancha region in central Spain and occupy more than a third of the country's grape coverage. The grapes owe their popularity to having neutral aromas and being drought-resistant. The airén vineyards are exposed to dry summers and cold winters that give them enough time to mature slowly. Airén is a relatively old grape, and winemakers are always making advancements toward the wine's fermenting process.

      What is the history of airén white wine?

      The word airén dates back to 1615 and is a derivative of the word lairén. The white wine continues to experience consistent growth in popularity after the 1950 deal between Franco and France to purchase Spanish brandy in an attempt to reduce poverty levels in the country. Later, the coverage of airén grapes in Spain increased to meet the production demands of airén wines both locally and internationally. Wines from each of these countries differ in taste due to differences in concentration of airén and viura.
