Winemaker's Notes

The grapes for this wine come from three different estate vineyards and from contracted fruit grown in the Val do Salnes sub-region of Rias Baixas. Cool maceration with skins overnight at low temperature and then only moderate pressure is used to obtain the more aromatic portion of the must. Fermented in stainless steel vats with temperature control. Bottled in March 2008.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright straw. Highly perfumed bouquet of tangerine, white flowers, brown spices and talc. Vibrant and precise, offering tangy citrus and floral flavors and slow-mounting mineral character. Finishes with very good clarity and mineral cut, repeating the floral and spicy qualities."

I tried this Albarino together with scallops in clementine sauce, the zest in the sauce enhanced the fruity flavor in the wine and the freshness in it made it specially good for the summer. It must be served quite chilly. Very good price quality ratio.
