Winemaker's Notes:

Intense and elegant with tropical fruit and kiwi complementing granitic minerality. Made from free-run juice, this is a well structured, dry Albarino with a long finish.

About Morgadio:

In 1984 a farm named " Morgadio" in the Rias Baixas sub district of Condado do Tea near aldea of Albeos was consolidated from multiple existing owners, and planting began. Vineyard areas were gradually expanded to its current 50 acres. Within Rias Baixas there are three sub districts: El Rosal and Val do Salnes on Galicia's rainy Atlantic coast, and Condado do Tea inland on the north bank of the Mino River, a situation remarkably reminiscent of Germany's Rheingau. Condado's benign climate, southern exposure and soil of brilliantly reflective granite sand serve to maximize the Albarino's concentration.

BODEGA: As important as the great Albarino grape to the production of world-class white wine is adequate winemaking equipment. Just in time for the 1988 harvest, Morgadio finished a state-of-the-art gravity-flow facility at the bottom of the vineyard amphitheater, which includes pneumatic presses and isothermic stainless steel tanks. From the 1996 vintage, the Mendez family of Orense has increased investment in the bodega for maximization of the estate's production, with a current capacity for annual production of 100% estate-bottled Albarino of 10,000 cases.
