||Rias Baixas, Spain
An extremely elegant and expressive nose; fine aromas of white stone fruits, hints of citric fruits, balsamic nuances, acacia blossoms and bay.
Liveliness and freshness in the palate, with a fluid texture and a balanced, long finish.
The Albariño grapes used to elaborate the wine come from Pazo de Barrantes estate, with 12 hectares divided into 8 different plots and located around the winery. The soils of the estate are granitic, with sand on the surface and the average age of the vineyard is 30 years.
A careful and slow winemaking process allows us to get the highest expression of this grape to produce wines with a great potential for ageing and unique personality.
After an exhaustive selection, the grapes are destemmed and pressed gently and slowly in a pneumatic press. The must is decanted by flotation to ensure greater aromatic purity and then fermented at 10ºC in stainless steel tanks for approximately 60 days. After fermentation, it remains 2 months with the fine lees in the stainless-steel tank.
7 months in stainless steel tanks, 15% in acacia wood barrels and 16 months in bottle.
