Production

The Albariño vines are cultivated using Pergola and trellis on gentle slopes, in stony soils with schist. The vineyards are 20-40 years old. At full ripeness, typically mid-September, the grapes are hand harvested into 20 kg cases. The best bunches are selected, and they cold macerate at 10ºC for 6-8 hours followed by a soft pressing. The must then undergoes temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel before bottling.

Tasting notes

Aromas of mandarin, stone fruit and orange blossom. This is a zesty and persistent Albariño with a great mix of citrus and peach fruit, and a hint of honeysuckle on the palate. Fresh and classic in style but with an appealing texture and softness that makes it approachable. It has good length driven by the acidity and intensity of fruit and floral characters.

Food match

The classic match would be seafood – mussels and oysters, perhaps as a seafood risotto or pasta dish.
