100% Albariño from a meticulous selection of the best grapes, harvested manually and collected in 20kg boxes in September from estate-owned, pesticide and herbicide-free vineyards with a vine age of between 12 and 40 years. After de-stalking and a light pressing, fermentation takes place for 15 days in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 17-18°C.
Brilliant, straw yellow colour with greenish hues. The nose has an intense varietal personality, ripe apples, peaches, citrus and floral notes with all the splendid characteristics of the Albariño grape. Bone dry, fruity, full and silky on the palate, fresh citrus, peach, dried pineapple, orchard fruit flavours and minerals dominate, well balanced, good body and acidity with a lingering floral finish. Oz Clarke: “nice mix of lemon and mineral flavours and bright zesty quality. A very attractive direct style.” Total production : 200,000 bottles. Ideal accompaniment to fish, seafood dishes, white meat, poultry, salads and fresh cheese.
