Ría de Arosa Albariño Rías Baixas 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

The Ría de Arosa is a white wine made from 100% Albariño grapes from the Valle del Salnés sub-region of the Rías Baixas D.O. The vines from which these grapes come from are planted in granite soils, in plots located halfway within a hill and the sea conferring a good balance of acidity, fruit concentration and freshness to this wine. This wine has had fine and long pressings, to preserve flavours coming from the skin, and has done alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Once fermentation is concluded, the wine rests for another 8 to 9 months in stainless steel tanks. Try it with shellfish, oven-roasted fish dishes, sushi and sashimi dishes, anchovies, almonds and other salty tapas, mid flavoured cheeses and mousses. Could also pair well with white meat and seasoned pasta dishes.
