Finca de Arantei Albarino Single Vineyard 2010
from Rias Baixas, Spain
Unusual for the DO of Rías Baixas, Finca de Arantei has crafted a singleestate, 100% Albariño
wine. Situated in the heart of the Miño Valley in the subzone of Condado de Tea, these estate
vineyards are characterized by poor, rocky soils and low yields. In addition, the vines are now 25
yearsold, which adds to the wine's intensity and concentration. After fermentation, the wine ages on
its lees in stainless steel for five months before release.
Pale straw lemon in color, this wine displays refreshing aromas of peaches, apricot, jasmine tea
and wet stone. On the palate, the flavors are equally rich and complemented by vibrant acidity, long length and lasting finish. This wine is perfect with artichokes, asparagus, shellfish or grilled fish,
salads and vegetable frittatas.
