Corisca, a 100% organic Albariño wine, is made in its namesake small family-owned winery and is also the name of the only wine they produce. The project started in 2009 when the family decided to apply organic agriculture techniques to their Albariño vineyards. Corisca is a pioneer in organic viticulture in DO Rías Baixas and is the only certified organic winery in the region. As a result, they promote a natural winemaking process, characterized by respect for their land and agriculture.
Corisca is meticulously made. Following a manual harvest the wine is gently destemmed. Prior to fermentation, the wine undergoes a carbonic maceration for 6 hours and a pneumatic pressing at low pressure. Static settling occurs for 48 hours followed by fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Only natural yeasts are used; Corisca ages on the lees for 3 months.
Corisca has 9.9 acres of vineyards, with a production capacity of 15,000 bottles per harvest.
