Description:

This wine is crafted with fruit from the Fillaboa estate, which boasts 70 hectares of vineyards lying on rolling slopes and bordering in the south with the Tea and Miño rivers, a natural frontier with Portugal.

Without a doubt, this year more than ever, wines from the Rias Baixas area will have a significant Atlantic influence. The oceanic climate invaded the Galician coasts and rivers with great force, reaching even the most sheltered areas of the Miño riverbank, situated 31 miles inland, making a clear mark on the personality of Fillaboa’s wines. 

This rare occurrence makes Fillaboa 2014 a must for wine collectors and tasters alike; bringing together rarely seen features; the mark of the sea being the most evident.

Tasting Notes:

Straw yellow, clean and bright. 

On the nose, intense and elegant at the same time. The wine shows typical aromas of the estate such as, pineapple, stone and citrus fruits and hints of apple and mango.

On the palate, the attack is smooth, with a vibrant acidity which perfectly reflects the wine's personality.

This is a fruity, fresh and very zesty Albariño wine with a personality of its own.
