CRAFTING AND AGING
40-year old bush vines cultivated in a privileged area of El Salnés, near to the town of Cambados and the Atlantic coast. Hand harvested. Maceration with the skins in small tanks at a controlled temperature over 4 days, prior to a gentle pressing and gentle fermentation at 16ºC over three weeks. Once the wine has been assembled, expert and delicate work with the lees takes place to give the wine depth and presence on the palate. A very noble grape variety that reaches its peak expression aer three months rest in bottle prior to its release to market.
LOOK: Lemon yellow with greenish highlights, clean and bright.
AROMA & PALATE: A pure sensation of fruit on the nose, ripe peach wrapped in citrus notes and a finish of ripe pear. On the palate, its enthralling acidity and great extract make a powerful impact upon entry. It then bursts with an explosion of delicious fruit: peach, attractive citrus notes and a lovely silkiness. The characteristic saline note of great wines made with this variety, which makes them so good with food, makes a clear appearance on the finish. A very seductive wine.
The clean avours of Albariño are very versatile and partner well with typical local dishes such as Galician style octopus or scallops. It is ideal with white meats and vegetables or seafood, clams, oysters and oven-baked fish.
