Albariño of an excellent standard
|Scores very well in professional tastings|
|Dusty aroma, fresh-juicy dry taste|
|The Spanish wine with crustaceans and shellfish or as an aperitif|
Albarino that you must have tasted
Delicious youthful dry white wine with a dusty aroma of green apple and lime. A nice accompaniment to fish salads, crustaceans and shellfish and lightly grilled fish.
Manuel Mendez from Rias Baixas
Manuel Mendez is the talented winemaker of the Finca Os Cobatos imported by us. In the beautiful wine region of Monterrei, he owns approximately 18 hectares of vineyard. Due to the average high humidity and the relative coolness, the climatic conditions in Rías Baixas are not always favorable.
The pergola system that is still often used in the vineyard also ensures a high yield. All in all, this often leads to insufficient ripeness of the grape, with a mediocre quality as a result. But by efficient pruning and converting the traditional pergola into modern leashed vines, the quality can improve by leaps and bounds.
In this way Manuel Mendez realizes more sunlight and aeration in his vineyard and the result is there. In addition, the granite soil also ensures a naturally low acidity in the grapes. The result: a unique white wine with juiciness and elegance! It is not without reason that dry white albariño of this level is very popular in Spanish gastronomy.
Rías Baixas with the fine white wines of the Albariño grape has an almost untouchable reputation as one of the best wine regions in Spain. The cool and humid region near the Atlantic Ocean in Galicia produces fresh white wines. These were particularly noticeable in the past when other Spanish white wines had a generally oxidative and not very exciting character. This situation has now changed, but Rías Baixas maintains a unique position with the production of refined white quality wine. This wine usually has a modest alcohol content and a subtle balance between freshness and maturity.
