This winery, founded in 1973, is currently run by Gerardo Mendez. Gerardo farms over 130 plots of Albarino, all located in the sub-zone of Salnes. This valley’s proximity to the ocean and protection by mountain ranges has gained it the reputation for being the best area in Rias Baixas for viticulture. The grapes were 100% destemmed and the wine was fermented with indigenous yeasts in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. The wine is then aged on the lees for at least six months before bottling. Tasting Notes: Complex aromas of salinity exotic fruits with wet earth/herbal tones. The palate is textured with excellent acidity.
