|Unknown Monterrei deserves an introduction|
Very distinctive in the white wine range
Fragrant, dry white wine with notes of citrus and a little toast. The taste is vigorously fresh, but due to the 'sur lie' ripening it also has a seductive juiciness.
Galician white wines are discovered. The most famous name from North West Spain is the already widely available Rias Baixas, but Galicia offers more inland yet undiscovered gems. Like the Alma de Autor from Monterrei by Manuel Mendez.
He turns an exclusively located vineyard plot with 50-year-old vines into a beautiful white wine from the godello grape. The vineyard of less than an hectare in size is located right next to the bodega. A big advantage because almost immediately after the manual picking, the grapes arrive in the cellar where Manuel immediately starts vinification.
Although still relatively unknown, Monterrei is a rapidly emerging designation of origin in Galicia with high-altitude vineyards. Almost 70% of the production is white wine. Here on the border between Atlantic and Mediterranean influence, the grapes ripen just a little further than in the sea-front Rias Baixas. The Alma de Autor has the characteristic Galician freshness in combination with a nice full flavor. Very suitable with fish, shellfish, white meat and even with pasta.
Fresh but also full flavor that goes well with shellfish (mussels) or fried fish.
