Description

Why we love it
A delightfully fresh, well-balanced Albariño, pairing stone-fruit and bright citrus flavours with the grape variety’s natural salinity.

Tasting notes
Pale yellow in colour with gold reflections. An intense nose of white stone fruit and zesty citrus. A fresh and flavourful grapefruit-accented palate – lively with a saline trace on the persistent finish.

Food pairing
Pairs well with shellfish such as oysters and clams, fish tacos, soft cheeses or semi-hard cheeses such as Manchego or salty feta. Also excellent with Padrón peppers.

Additional information
The grapes are from vines with an average age of 40 years, grown in the granitic and sandy soils of the estate’s seven vineyard plots.

The grapes from the seven plots are vinified separately. They are gently whole-bunch pressed and fermented using indigenous yeasts in stainless-steel tanks and old oak barrels. The wine is then aged on the lees for eight months in stainless steel and used oak with weekly bâtonnage. The finished wines from the different plots are blended before bottling.
