Abadia de San Campio Albariño 2017, DO Rias Baixas.
Abadia de San Campio 2017, White wine, Albariño grape 100% from Rias Baixas, Galicia, Spain. Made from the Albariño grown in the highest-altitude of Terras Gauda winery, that means less humid, cooler vineyards where there is a greater difference daytime-nighttime temperature differential, thus favoring slower ripening, giving us a fresher Albariño of great aromatic intensity, a greater degree of acidity and smoothness on the palate.
Sommilier recommendation: Enjoy chilled on a hot summer day. Wonderful pairing with shellfish; oysters, clam and crab. Enjoy with spicy Asian cuisine.
Tasting note: This 2017 vintage is characterized by its intense tropical fruit aromas, mainly pineapple, along with delicate, fresh aromas of ripe white fruit such as Golden apple and pear, accompanied by subtle notes of lime over an anise background. These aromas are enhanced thanks to cold maceration. Abadia de San Campio wine is both fresh and powerful on the palate. Amiable and velvety, with an outstandingly broad gustatory range, the hallmark of a vintage characterized by its fine ripening. The acidity is restrained yet vibrant, along with an appreciable unctuous quality, providing us with a balanced, lively, appetizing wine. Ample tropical and white fruit retronasal aroma with a very long, powerful finish.
