Bodegas Gerardo Mendez
Complex aromas of salinity exotic fruits with wet earth/herbal tones. The palate is textured with excellent acidity.100% Albarino from Rias Biaxas.
"The flavor of tart white fruit remains in the background, while intense mineral notes surround the palate in a hug. This albarino is juicy, refreshing and full of life, its acidity present from beginning to end and everywhere in between. Open it now for seafood linguine."
This wine was especially created to be served on special occasions as an apperitif or with sushi, seafood, salads, poultry as well as Italian and Chinese cuisine.
Blend: 30% Arinto, 20% Alvarinho, 20% Loureiro, 20% Avesso, 10% Azal
Yellow with green hues; very bright. Intensely aromatic, with citrus notes of orange zest together set against a tropical background of pineapples, grapefruit and custard apples. Varietal aromas are also prominent, particularly pears, apples and melon together with perceptible floral hints. Fresh and vibrant on the palate, with very good structure and a long, silky, fruit-laden finish.
The cooler, higher elevation Condado do Tea subregion gives rise to a fresh, precise expression of Albariño in general and this particular site lends an intense mineral streak through the wine. A floral, blossomy nose with peach and apricot aromas which carry through on the palate with taut structure, complex fresh fruit, understated mid-palate weight, all on a strong backbone of mineral acidity.
