Albariño Laxas

Wine Making

Following an optimum blooming after a dry, mild winter, the light August rains delayed the intermediate stage of ripening. A September with no rainfall led to a perfect, balanced final growth of the grape.

Starting from perfectly ripe grapes in their ideal state, exclusively from the sub-area of the Condado del Tea, meticulous pressing gives an excellent quality must.

Fermentation of the alcohol takes place in stainless steel vats, at a controlled temperature of 18ºC; when fully fermented, all the wines are decanted to separate the dregs, followed by the “coupage” of the various vats. The wine is then stabilized by applying cold, filtered and bottled, after passing through a microbe-free filter process to ensure that the wine is preserved in the bottle in perfect condition.

Wine-tasting

Clear, brilliant wine, straw yellow coloured with green nuances. An intense aroma on the nose, perfectly combining the fruity and floral notes, particularly apple and stoned fruit (apricot). Freshness on the palate typical of Albariño, with a touch of acidity perfectly balanced with the structure and body of this wine. Meaty, sweet with a glyceric finish.

Latest Remarks:

“Medium straw-colored, with a slight amber tint. It gives up a pleasing perfume of mineral, baking spices, lemmon and other citrus notes. Medium-bodied, it reveals excelnt deph, some richness, savory fruit and lenghty finish. Drink it over the next 3 years”.

Rated: 89/100 Robert Parker

The Wine Spectator. February, 2012

“Textbook Albariño from what’s shaping up into one of Galicia’s best years in a long time. This wine is elegant and lightly creamy, with flower blossom and citrus aromas preceding apple, peach and nectarine flavors that are straight from the farm stand. A pure and exemplary wine given that 30,000 cases were made”.

Rated: 91/100

Wine Enthusiast. January, 2011

“High intensity. Highlights herbaceous notes and white flowers. Aromas of tropical fruits on a background of quince. The mouth is large, sweet, supple, fruit weight around the way accompanied by marine notes, great acidity and long lingering finish. Consumption: one to two years”.

Rated: 93/100
