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.

PRODUCER: Rías Baixas Appellation is formed by a group of areas in Galicia which are characterized by sharing some physical conditions. They are the basis of the appellation’s extraordinary conditions: mild temperatures, abundant rainfall, low altitude, and Atlantic and Miño River influence. O Rosal Valley is located in the South of the Rías Baixas, where the Miño River flows into the Atlantic Ocean and the frontier with Portugal.
History. Family. Friends. Dedication. Vocation. A wide range of words that define Adegas Valmiñor and flow into the same passion, their wines. The winery was founded back in 1997 with ancestral tradition of Albariño growing and since then they take care with the highest respect these lands that bring them high quality wines, their legacy, their life.
