This wine is made
from 100% Albariño grapes from the Salnés Valley. Featuring a combination of fruit
collected from owned vineyards, and fruit purchased from
some of the very best local growers (many supplying the winery for up to 30
years). The vines used for making this wine have an average age of between 20 and 40 years, and
produce a fruity, well-rounded wine that serves as the perfect introduction to Albariño.
Clean and intensely fresh wine that exhibits all the
typical characteristics of the Albariño grape variety.
Ripe and aromatic, with overtones of peach,
melon and honey, offset by a crisp tangy acidity that helps to balance the rich fruit flavors. A well-rounded wine with a long, mellow, honeyed finish.
