The Albariño grapes for Abadia de San Campio 2014 were selected from the Goian vineyards and were picked during second half of September. The must extracted from these grapes ripened to perfection giving the wine great varietal strength, distinguished by its breadth and balance of flavours. Thanks to the warm and dry summer we had this year, that gave the final wine a notable varietal fineness, very strong in the mouth and with great aromatic intensity.
Rías Baixas – Galicia, Spain.
This wine was sourced from vineyards 50 to 90m feet above sea level with an annual average of 15C, very little frost and abundant rainfall. Once harvested by hand, the grapes were transported to the winery in boxes holding no more than 20kg of grapes, thereby avoiding any premature bruising of the fruit.
After 6 hours of cold maceration, traditional fermentation took place at controlled temperatures in stainless steel tanks. After adding natural yeasts from the vineyards, the wine was cold stabilized, filtered and finally bottled.
Intense and clean fruit aromas in this vintage, topped by citrics and white fruits such as banana and sweet pear, accompanied by light aniseed tones. Aromas enhanced by the cold maceration. This 2014 vintage shines by its strength and intensity on the palate. This crisp white wine maintains a balance of acidity and fruit density. Broad and citrus after nose with a long finish.
