It is known for producing Albariño, which is a dry, refreshing white wine with citrus and white stone fruit flavors, with a long, delightful floral finish. Some of these wines also have a light effervescence. The flavors are very versatile and can be paired with many Asian cuisines including sushi, as well as plenty of seafood and shellfish preparations, can take on a pesto, plus soups such as white gazpacho, cauliflower and even butternut squash.

*Val do Salnes: the coolest area just touching the coastline. Known for producing some of the best wines of the region on gradual slopes and valley floors of the Umia river.

  • Rectoral Do Umia Viñabade Albariño 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Simple and bright fresh lemon and green apple aromas on the nose. This is emollient in the mouth with soft fleshy fruit notes of melon and papaya, a bit of creaminess coming through on the mi2015d palate amidst the green apple and lemon notes, and finishing a bit grassy and waxy with good length.

  • Terras Gauda 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Intriguingly nutty bouquet of almond and maraschino cherry with more classic white wine notes of lemon meringue and green apple. Palate is lightly spiced and quite velvety with green apple and pear notes, tart acidity and excellent balance, with a finish of toast and butter covered in lemon zest. Beautiful wine.91 pts Read More

    A whiff of rose petal on the nose with mostly lemon notes. A bit soft in the mouth, this still shows some good acidity and freshness, lots of lemon on the palate, some soft cheese hints make for a creamy finish.88 pts Read More
