From the hillsides of Condado do Tea including an extraordinary plot with 75 year old vines on slate soils. This is unique both because of the age of the vines, but also the slate component (most of the rest of the DO is granite soils).
Vinification and elevage in tank on the lees.
TASTING NOTES |
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.
