100% Albariño from a highly meticulous selection, hand-harvested and collected in 20 kg boxes from estate-owned, pesticide and herbicide-free vineyards with a vine age between 20-40 years. The soils of the vineyard are geologically old, granitic and sandy textured. Three types of vinification are adopted: maceration of one third of the grapes at low temperature 11°C, one third whole bunch pressing and one third direct pressing. Alcoholic fermentation takes place for 15 days in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 17°C. Brilliant, straw yellow in colour with greenish hues. Clean, highly aromatic and pronounced on the nose, ripe apples, peaches, citrus and floral notes with all the splendid characteristics of the Albariño grape. Dry, stone fruit notes, full and silky mouth, fresh citrus, peach, dried pineapple and minerals dominate, well balanced, good body and acidity with a complex, lingering floral finish. Wine Enthusiast, Michael Schachner, 90 points, ‘A blend of mineral, apple and pear aromas amount to a clean whole that presents this in good light. A lemony palate blazes with citric acidity, while flavours of white pineapple and orange don’t falter on the finish. If you want a textbook-defined Albarino, this is it.’ Total production 200,000 bottles. Ideal accompaniment to grilled crayfish, seafood dishes, sushi, white meat, poultry, rice dishes, salads and fresh cheese.
