The vineyards are primarily in the Salnés Valley, an average of five kilometres from the sea, ensuring the warm days are moderated by cool nights. The warm temperatures give ripeness and full citrus and apricot fruit, while the colder temperatures at night ensure fresh, pure Albariño aromatics.
Grapes are picked by hand in 20 kg crates and were de-stemmed and gently crushed and pressed. Alcoholic fermentation took place in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats between 16-18ºC. The wine then underwent full malolactic fermentation and spent four months on its fine lees which imparts a smooth, almost creamy texture to the wine.
A lime yellow colour with golden highlights. Full of ripe apples, apricots, and peach aromas typical of the varietal. On the palate, the wine is rich, mellow and well-balanced with juicy fruit and clean acidity. Rounded, with a long, off dry, minerally finish.
Food Suggestion: Excellently paired with seafood, shellfish, poultry and mild cheese.
