This Albariño estate in Rías Baixas was acquired by La Rioja Alta S.A. in 1988, when the company, formed by five Rioja winemaking families in 1895, took the bold decision to cease white Rioja production and find somewhere to produce a better Spanish white wine. The Galician winery was rebuilt - twice - and the vineyards expanded from five to 65 hectares. The project has been run throughout by Ángel Suárez, who found a microclimate and planted and vinified in such a way to produce Albariño of remarkable balance - citrus acidity, stone-fruit aromatics and great structure.
Tasting notes: Straw-yellow with green hues; very bright. Very intense nose, with citrus rind aromas, accompanied by stone fruit notes such as apricots and the typical varietal aromas of albariño: ripe white fruit, apples and pears. Fresh entry, with great structure and breadth in the mouth. On the finish, it brings back the freshness and citrus aromas. Perfect to enjoy with any appetizer. Ideal with seafood as well as with salads, fish rice dishes, poultry and fresh cheese. The perfect choice for sushi and sashimi.
