StyleAromatic & Zesty
In a winery in Rias Baixas, close to the ocean, Rodrigo Mendez works his magic with Albarino, one of nature`s most beautiful white grape varieties. Grown on granite sand covered with a layer of humus over granite bedrock; very poor fast draining soil that vines struggle in and phylloxera cannot live in, just perfect! Many of the vineyards are deceptively old with some vines up to 200 years old. The grapes are hand picked so that only the ripest most succulent fruit is used for Rodrigo`s wine which is matured in old oak barriques. Ripe stone fruits with a hint of cut grass and sandlewood on the nose with stone fruits and antique oak with well balanced acidity on the palate.
