APPELLATION: Rías Baixas DO.
VINIFICATION: Made with 100% Albariño from more than 25 years old vines. Grape selection previous to destemming. Static settling is made in stainless steel tanks. Alcoholic fermentation made under controlled temperature. Filtering through a tangential filter and bottling.
TASTING NOTES: Straw yellow wine with green reflections and steely shades of great transparency. On the nose, hints of apricot, pear and ripe exotic fruits complemented by a lemon-lime vibrancy, all perfectly blended together with its subtle flowery scent. On the palate, it shows vegetable notes and a fresh acidity. A wise craftsmanship and care in the vineyard have produced a surprisingly intense wine, with a strong aromatic richness.
FOOD PAIRING: Caprese Salad, Barbecued Asian chicken breast with bean sprout salad, Blue-cheese dip, Crepes with lobster, Grilled cheese sandwich, Pulled-pork croquettes, Salmon tartare with citrus and dill, Milanese risotto and Sea food.
