Description

Lush Albariño from Spain’s Rias Baixas

The grapes are sourced from the vineyards situated in the Salnés Valley and the ORosal area, within the D.O. Rías Baixas appellation. Vines are arranged in the “emparrado” and “espaldera” (trellis) systems. The soils are largely granite, with some chalk and clay – even the posts for supporting the grapevines are made from granite instead of wood.

The grapes are hand harvested to avoid any damage to the skins. Once at the winery, the fruits are selected by quality, destemmed and passed into to a tank where they are maintained in cold maceration for 4-6 hours. The must is then racked during a 10-hour period, followed by the removal of the solid lees. The final fermentation takes place at a low temperature of 17oC during 15-20 days. Once the alcoholic fermentation is finished, the wine is racked again main- taining the fine lees for an additional 3-4 months. Eventually, the wine is clarified, filtered and bottled.

Bright and aromatically complex, notes of ripe apricot, apple and wild flowers. Fresh and crisp with a persistent lush textures on the palate. The finish is fruity and with mineral nuances. The Albariño’s fresh acidity make it a fine contrast to foods that are rich, salty, oily, fatty, or mildly spicy. It also pairs nicely with tart foods such as vinaigrettes, capers, leeks, and tomatoes. The wine is an excellent accompaniment to fish and shellfish.
