Terras Gauda Albariño Rías Baixas O Rosal 2010
Terras Gauda O Rosal is the perfect blend of the native Rías Baixas varieties: 70% Albariño, 20% Loureira, and 10% Caiño Blanco, all estate-grown in the O Rosal Valley located on the Galician riverbanks of the Miño River. The wine undergoes a traditional and separate vinification due to natural fermentation at controlled temperatures in stainless-steel tanks. After adding natural yeasts from the vineyards, the wine was cold-stabilized, filtered ,and finally bottled. It's crisp and clean, revealing its stunning structure and balancing acidity.
Food Pairings for Terras Gauda Albariño Rías Baixas O Rosal
By blending some Loureiro and Caíño with Albariño, Terras Gauda achieves a complexity that Albariño rarely comes to on its own. All manner of citrus fruits, several colors of apples and pears, and even a few hints of tropical notes contribute to the layers. And the nose and mouth exhibit not just honey but beeswax, a telltale sign of slate in the vineyards (just ask those Riesling producers).
