Description:

Albariño grapes from these vineyards are protected by the D. O. Rias Baixas, Salnés. This subarea micro-climate off the Atlantic Ocean are perfect for unique fruit ripening. 

The grapes are picked by hand. Harvest took place in the beginning of October and grapes were then transported from the vineyard to the winery in small capacity plastic boxes, to avoid crushing of grapes.                           

Tasting Notes:

Bright yellow color with green hues. 

On the nose there is a complex aroma, subtle and powerful, with elegant floral notes present. 

The palate is round, fruity, persistent and with excellent balance as a whole.
