Tasting Note

Complex, fine and attractive aroma of white flowers and candied fruits; with a smoky, earthy undertone. The palate is creamy with a rich and lively structure. Powerful and broad mid-palate, with touches of aromatic herbs and subtle saline and balsamic notes. Its fresh acidity, and intense aromatic profile means it will continue to develop over the next few years.

Winemaking

Vineyard: All the grapes come from a small plot in the iconic Finca Valiñas vineyard (7.8 ha in total), which was planted more than 30 years ago. Production is limited to just 6,000 bottles a year. Finca Valiñas vineyard stands on terraces on the southern face of the Valiñas mountain with breathtaking views over the Ría and the Salnés Valley. The Albariño grapevines are staked high to enable them to receive those Atlantic aromas direct from the sea. An extremely poor soil formed by decomposed granite and sand gives the wine a mineral character. The grapes are selected by hand at the winery with about 15% discarded as they are not up to the high levels of quality desired.

Vinification: All the grapes are hand sorted twice for a further selection and then macerate in cold condition for about 20 hours. The wine is produced by the THE GANIMEDE METHOD - a cold maceration process which produces extremely aromatic white wines: An inverted cone is inserted in the interior of a tank which allows C02 to enter and prevents oxidation. Then, injection of small quantities of C02 to facilitate an elegant yet subtle aromas. Part of the free-run must was fermented in carefully-selected French oak casks where it spent six months over lees to acquire nuances and aromas. The rest of the wine continues sur lee in the stainless-steel vats with periodical stirring. The blending takes place after six months approximately. After bottling, the wine stayed in our cellars for a few months to ensure that all those aromas that make it unique and special would blend together.

Food Recommendation

Ideal with white meat, sophisticate fish dishes and oriental food (sushi, sashimi, etc.)
