Laxas 2017 Albariño Estate Wine

Bodegas As Laxas DO Rias Baixas

100% Albariño. the very best grapes from 30+ year old vines, hand-picked into boxes of 20kg , followed by a meticulous pressing to give an excellent quality must. Stainless steel fermentation at a controlled temperature of 18°C for 15 days. When fully fermented, all the wines are decanted to separate the dregs, followed by the 'coupage' of the various vats. The wine is then stabiised, filtered and bottled, after passing through a microbe-free filter process to ensure that the wine is preserved in the bottle in perfect condition.

Clean, bright straw-coloured with green glints. Intense with tropical fruit aromas like mango and passion fruit, apples and citrus notes together with white flowers and a saline background. In the mouth, a perfect combination of fruity and floral notes in which apples, citrus fruits and stone fruits like apricots stand out, while maintaining the freshness and glyceric fullness of the Albariño and its saline point, and a touch of minerality which balance perfectly with the wine's silky body and structure.12.5% abv. Perfect with shellfish - oysters, clams, crab - and with spicy Asian cuisine.
