Wine Description

Corisca is meticulously made. Following a manual harvest it is gently destemmed. Prior to the fermentation, the wine undergoes a carbonic maceration for 6 hours and a pneumatic pressing at low pressure. Static settling occurs for 48 hours followed by fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Only natural yeasts are used. Corisca ages on the lees for 3 months.

Tasting Notes

Straw yellow with green tints. On the nose, aromas of hay and white fruit with overtones of ripe grape and deep mineral aromas. The palate is fresh, balanced and fruity with a touch of apples and grapes and a long finish.

Optimal Serving Temperature: 10 °F

Pairing(s): Albariños have a fresh, citrus, tangy character that makes them pair wonderfully with all kinds of shellfish and seafood. In Galicia, cockles, razor clams, oysters, clams, octopus and squid are common local dishes, all a great match for this wine. This wine also has the clean acidity necessary to allow it to pair well with some Thai, Vietnamese and Chinese dishes.
