Description

The Albariño and Caíño are from the lower-altitude parcels, in other words, more humid and warmer parcels, meaning an earlier harvest and thus wines more highly concentrated, less acid and more full-bodied. The Loureiro comes from the highest altitude, least humid, cooler vineyards, leading to a slower ripening giving us a vibrant Loureiro of intense aromas and smoothness on the palate. Following cold-soaking for different lengths of time depending on the varieties, the fermentation took place at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks. After adding natural yeasts supplied from our own vineyards, the wine was cold-stabilized, filtered and then bottled.

TASTING NOTES
The combination of varieties is surprising. The Albariño contributes its fruity aromas and roundness on the palate to this blend. The Loureiro provides good floral aromatic intensity, the Caíño adding aromas of exotic fruits, balsamic notes and, most importantly of all, great structure and singularity. This is a highly complex wine combining the aromas of ripe peach, pineapple, anise, orange blossom and citrus aromas of mandarin orange with undertones pleasingly reminiscent of mineral, earthy touches and notes of bay leaf and mint.

FOOD PAIRING
The wine is rich on the palate and deserves seafood, especially oysters and crab, perfect with Asian cuisine
with rich and spicy sauces.
