Winemaker's Notes

Terras Gauda Abadía de San Campio responds faithfully to the traditions of the mythical Albariño wines.The albariño grapes from which Abadía de San Campio was made, which were picked between October 1 and 3, came from the plots at Goian (Argallo), our highest vineyard, where the humidity is lower, the temperatures are cooler and ripening is slower. These conditions provided a wine of great aromatic intensity typical of the grape variety, with hints of ripe white fruit—Golden Delicious apple and pear—supported by pleasant notes of citrus. With a good breadth and balance of flavors, the wine is bright and fresh, with a certain tartness reinforcing the sensation of freshness. The good balance between the acids and sugar give the wine a pleasant final touch, persisting in the mouth for a long time.

Critical Acclaim

"Light gold. Musky citrus and orchard fruit aromas are brightened by notes of talc, white pepper and white flowers. Juicy, pliant pear and melon flavors display very good concentration and are nicely braced by tangy minerality. Finishes with excellent clarity and persistence, and an echo of lemon."
