Tasting Notes
Terras Gauda O Rosal is the perfect blend of the best native Rías Baixas varieties. 

A greenish-yellow in color, this wine has a generous nose of ripe peach, aromatic herbs, hints of bay leaf and mint, orange blossom, mandarin and orange peel.

On the palate, it is round with hints of mineral and earthy memories. It finishes with crispness and minerality, revealing its stunning structure, density and balanced acidity.
