    Winemaker Notes

    Pale gold. Bright, minty, stony aromas of fresh citrus and pear kissed by ginger. Firm and dry, with bright orange and lemon flavors and a juicy tone to the finish. Almost gentle in the context of Albarino.

    Morgadio, , Spain
    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.

    With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
