Moraima Albarino

This high class Albario comes from vineyard featuring a majority of ungrafted vines of the authentic Albario variety.

Moraima Albario is produced in the traditional minimalist Rias Baixas viticulture (late prune,summer leaf cull). Integrated viticulture production with environmentally-friendly applications including manual harvest in boxes and vineyard bunch selection. Prior to fermentation, 10 hours of cold maceration for the ideal Albario variety aroma extraction. The wine is fermented in stainless steel temperature-controlled tanks.

The aging of wine on lees until bottling provides great structure.

Tasting Notes

Straw-yellow in color,dense and smooth tears, bright, clean, crystalline.

It has a strong Atlantic character, with salty and mineral notes.

Aromas evolve from ripe stone fruit(apricot, peach), ripe tropical fruit (pineapple), and white flowers, to raw nuts(cashews and peanuts), and fennel, with a balsamic background.

In the mouth it has a nice silky entry with medium-high acidity, fresh and salty.

The wine has a mineral background, voluminous texture and great structure. The finish is long and satisfying.
