Winemaker Notes

The combination of varieties is surprising. This is a highly complex wine combining the aromas of ripe peach, pineapple, anise, orange blossom and citrus aromas of mandarin orange with undertones pleasingly reminiscent of mineral, earthy touches and notes of bay leaf and mint. The first impression is that of a wine of great character, full-bodied and fleshy on the palate, powerful structure and velvety feeling. This consistency, along with its fresh, amiable acidity, offers us an enjoyable, intense wine with a long finish. This wine is a clear reflection of the excellent 2015 vintage. This wine presents us with two seemingly contradictory characteristics: It is a complex yet easily drinkable wine.

The wine is rich on the palate and deserves seafood, specially oysters and crab, perfect with Asian cuisine with rich and spicy sauces.

Critical Acclaim

WE 91
Wine Enthusiast

Peachy, floral aromas are friendly and clean. This blend of mostly Albarino and some Caino Blanco and Loureira is round on the palate, with ample volume. Appealing flavors of melon, peach and apple finish dry and with a hint of white pepper. Wines like this are why almost everyone loves Albarino from Rias Baixas.

Terras Gauda
Following the wine-growing revolution in Galicia that was triggered by the setting-up of the D.O. Rías Baixas designation of origin, José María Fonseca, the winery’s current Chairman, began to see the wine world more clearly and from his position on the Board managed and supported the development of wine-growing and oenology courses, as well as a host of partnerships related to the art of winemaking.

From a private initiative and spurred by the setting-up of Viñedos do Rosal and Adegas das Eiras. the founding partners’ original dream of making a firm commitment to O Rosal wines began to be realised. He winery’s philosophy was that Albariño, being such a noble variety, could benefit greatly from a union with other native strains to provide it with subtle new qualities and so further enhance the already strong reputation of O Rosal wines.

Over the years, the original two companies have merged into one, called - logically, given the prestige and recognition achieved by our leading brand - Bodegas Terras Gauda, meaning "joyous land."

A rugged, sunbaked plain that has long served as a haven for outlaws and rogues, Paso Robles has made a name for itself as a source of rebelliously powerful wines. With 11 smaller sub-AVAs, there is quite a bit of diversity to be found in this inland portion of California’s Central Coast.

This is mostly red wine country, with Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel standing out as the star performers. Other popular varieties include Merlot, Petite Sirah, Petit Verdot, and Rhône varieties both red and white. There is a fairly uniform tendency here towards wines that are unapologetically bold and opulently fruity, albeit with a surprising amount of acidity thanks to the region’s chilly nighttime temperatures.

Bordeaux Blends

View More

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World, especially in California, Washington, and Australia. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and/or Petit Verdot, these are sometimes referred to in the US as “Meritage” blends. In Bordeaux itself, Cabernet Sauvignon dominates in wines from the Left Bank of the Gironde river, while the Right Bank focuses on Merlot. Often, blends from outside the region are classified as being inspired by one or the other.

In the Glass

Cabernet-based, Left-Bank-styled wines are typically more tannic and structured, while Merlot-based wines modeled after the Right Bank are softer and suppler. Cabernet Franc can add herbal notes, while Malbec and Petit Verdot contribute color and structure. Wines from Bordeaux can be bold and fruit-forward or restrained and earthy, while New World facsimiles tend to emulate the former style. In general, Bordeaux red blends can have aromas and flavors of black currant, cedar, plum, graphite, and violet, with more red fruit flavors when Merlot makes up a high proportion of the blend.

Perfect Pairings

Since Bordeaux red blends are often quite structured and tannic, they pair best with hearty, flavorful, and fatty meat dishes. Any type of steak makes for a classic pairing. Equally welcome with these wines would be beef brisket, pot roast, braised lamb, or smoked duck.

Sommelier Secret

While the region of Bordeaux is limited to a select few approved grape varieties, the New World is free to experiment. Bordeaux blends in California may include Syrah, Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, or virtually any other grape deemed worthy by the winemaker. In Australia, Shiraz is a common component.
