  • Vineyard Profile

    • In old country houses known as “pazos”, surrounded by forests and vineyards, Galician witches conjured up spirits through magic and dance. And so the sap, the lifeblood, coursed through the vines, filling them with vitality. Like the Albariño grapes that give birth to this wine.

    • Appellation: DO Rías Baixas
  • Vintage Report

    • In Rías Baixas, Climate conditions throughout 2021 deviated significantly from what we’ve come to expect over the past few years. The winter brought low temperatures and a lot of rain, whereas the spring was dry with summery temperatures. This facilitated fruit set and resulted in greater crop production. Summer began with dry weather and high temperatures in June and July, but in August, conditions turned prematurely autumnal, with a period of heavy rainfall. But this was followed by a stretch of good weather, which allowed the grapes to attain the desired level of balanced maturation.

    “This light-straw-colored wine has a bouquet of green apple and peach, with a touch of pine needle. It is bright in the mouth, with flavors of pineapple, grapefruit, dried apricot and thyme that wind down to a bright finish.”
