Albariño / Rias Baixas: Terras Gauda ( 2018 )
Description: The spring rains and mild temperatures Summer 2012 provoked in the vines a very long cycle with a slow, long and excellent maturation of the three varieties, Vintage delayed ten days compared to a normal year. The slow maturation musts provided us with high sugar and acidity adjusted transformed into wines of great structure.
Cata: The surprising combination of varieties. It is a wine of great complexity where the fusion of flavors of apricot, ripe melon, citrus orange peel and orange blossom are based on subtle mineral notes and hints of mint and eucalyptus.
From the moment the wine fills the mouth with its structure and smoothness. It is dense and very meaty, if chews, and touches of minerality with his fresh acidity, we provide intense, pleasant and long finish.
This wine gives us two seemingly contradictory characteristics: It is a complex but easy to drink.
