Élaboration du produit
100% Albariño grapes from our vineyards in O Rosal and O Salnés (D.O. Rías Baixas). We started picking perfectly ripe grapes on September 3rd in Finca Silvosa (O Rosal). We collected the grapes in 20 kg/44 lb tubs that were quickly taken to the winery in refrigerated vehicles. There, they were unloaded onto the sorting table, where any bunch failing to be in perfect condition was removed. After destemming, the grapes were cooled to 10°C/50°F and macerated for 10 hours. We pressed the grapes in membrane presses under inert atmosphere to prevent oxidation. After settling, the clean must fermented in tanks at 15°C/59°F. Due to the characteristics of this vintage, with perfectly balanced acidity in the must, the wine did not undergo malolactic fermentation. The wine was kept on the lees until bottling, with periodic stirring to keep them in suspension, adding complexity to the wine.
Notes de dégustation
Clean and bright; greenish yellow. Extraordinarily elegant nose of ripe white fruit, apples, pears, custard apples, citrus fruit, lemon peel and stone fruit. It is very expressive in the mouth; creamy yet fresh. A very balanced finish makes it a perfect exponent of the Albariño variety.

Smoky and dry with floral scents of lees, this is a rich and unctuous albariño for a clam bake.
