Wine Description
One of the oldest Albariño plantations produces a wine that has subtle complexity. By being aged on lees, the wine has a fresh and fruity taste that evolves from the first sip to the last. 
Tasting Notes

A bright straw-colored yellow, this Albariño is full of fresh varietal perfumes, like flowers and fruit (apple, pear, or citrus). It has a wide range of balsamic reminders and fine toasted nuances. On the palate the wine is very elegant, wide and fresh, broad and long, as well as very juicy and expressive.
