Wine Description

The grapes for Abadía de San Campio 2015 Albariño were selected from the vineyards located in Goián and harvested on September 28th. The grapes were picked in an excellent state of ripeness thanks to a mainly dry, hot summer, infusing the wine with great varietal fineness, balance, remarkable length on the palate and a highly aromatic intensity.

The vineyards are located 150 to 450 feet above sea level with an annual average temperature of 59° F, with almost no frost and abundant rainfall. 

Once harvested by hand, the grapes were transported to the winery in a maximum of 44-pound crates, thus preventing the grapes from any premature breakage.

Following 6 hours of cold soaking, the traditional low-temperature fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats with the addition of native yeasts supplied from our own vineyards. The wine is cold-stabilized, filtered and then finally bottled.


Tasting Notes

Bright and clear color with aromas of citrus fruits, ripe apple, pear and banana, together with pineapple and lemon. 

On the palate this crisp white wine shows an amazing ripe fruit sensation with a fantastic balance of acidity and fruit.
