Produced from a selection of Albariño grapes from our 35-hectare-vineyard Arantei (35 Ha). “Arantei” is the best example of a single vineyard in the region. The vineyard is located in the old river bed, and pebbles are the main feature of this mineral and rich soil. Arantei is also one of the vineyards with the most sun-hours in the Rías Baixas region.
The wine is the result of the careful and manual selection of grapes from the Arantei vineyard. 100% of the grapes are macerated before pressing (4 to 6 hours at a controlled temperature of 8-10ºC). The fermentation takes place in stainless-steel tanks at controlled temperature using only the indigenous yeasts from the vineyard. Once the fermentation has finished, the wine stays in the tank with its fine lees for at least three months, with regular and continuous stirring-up of the lees during this time.
The wine has bright and clean green golden tones. On the nose it is complex, mineral, fruity and floral with harmonious notes of fresh herbs and citrus. In the mouth it is rich, with abundant fruit and great acidity, rounded with a creamy character coming from its aging on the fine lees. It has a long, persistent and fresh finish.
Drink with all kinds of seafood and more flavourful fish, as well as fresh cheese, foie-gras, chicken, rice dishes and pasta. Best enjoyed at 12ºC.
