Viticulture

Obtained from three varieties historically linked to the Tea County subarea, within the Rias Baixas Designation of Origin: Albariño provides structure, strength and aroma; Treixadura smoothness and subtlety, and Loureiro a grater aromatic experience.

Elaboration

When september ends, the harvest begins where the grapes are picked by hand in 20 Kg boxes with a rigorous reception control. Afterwards, the destemmed grapes are macerated for 6 hours at 10ºC (50ºF). The must is pressed and immediately racked. It’s fermented in stainless steel tanks (barrels) for approximately three weeks at low temperatures in order to preserve its characteristic aroma. The musts from the different varieties are fermented separately and then by tasting, so we can define the proper “coupage” for its bottling posteriorly.

Wine Tasting Notes

Straw yellow with a lustrous green tone, adequate brightness and limpidity. To the nose it has a mid-high intensity with characteristic floral, fresh herbs and fruitlike tones; lemon yogurt, and the typical Albariño grape citrus. It also possesses the highlycharacteristic Treixadura green apple fragrance, herbs and balsamics of the aromatic Loureiro with slight smoked and toasted scents. In the mouth it’s tasty and fresh with a well integrated acidity as well as an intense fruity flavour with a mild saline-bitter aftertaste, and the refreshing hint of citrus that invites anyone to drink.

Suggestions from the Sommelier

It’s an adequate wine to accompany, not only seafood and fish, but also as a magnificent host for fresh cheese, foie, poultry and different kinds of rice and pasta. Suggested consumption at 10ºC.
