Information

The perfect accompaniment for the sunny weather and a chance to try all 3 at a great price!!  Normal price for all 3 £63.50.

Albariño has become a firm favourite for white wine drinkers who love the dazzling freshness of Sauvignon Blanc but want a bit more peachy roundness.

We have put together a trio of Albariños for you to enjoy, all delicious with shellfish, fried fish, paella and semi cured cheese.

Ama Vida (Love Life), Bodegas Gallegas

Produced in the Salnés Valley, where the Albariño grape traditionally develops maximum quality and strength.

Bright golden yellow in colour.  On the nose, intense apple and stone fruit (apricot and peach) character plus delicate floral hints.  On the palate it has plenty of peachy fruit balanced with lemon and orange blossom to enhance freshness.

Lusco, Adega Pazos de Lusco

Adega Pazos de Lusco is one of the most renowned wineries in Rias Baixas.

Lusco meaning 'Sunset' in local dialect is hand harvested bunch by bunch fermented with it's natural yeasts after 6 hours maceration and gentle pressing to get the highest varietal flavours without greenness and left to age on the lees for 4 months.

Bright straw in colour with watermelon, pear, lemon, fennel, stone fruits and walnut aromas.  Very rounded and balanced.

Tras de Viña, Zarate, Bodegas Zarate

Zarate is a family run estate located in Meaño, the heart of the Salnés Valley.

The 11 vineyards are planted mostly of granitic soil with an average vine age of 35 years old.

This wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks on the lees for 30 months with no battonage (stirring).  Due to the extended time it has ageing on the lees, Tras de Viña is richer and creamier than the basic albariño.

It really expresses it's terroir with the minerally granite combining a honeyed nose with hints of cheese rind.  The wine has texture on the palate, whilst retaining the steely minerality that makes it able to age and still taste so lively.
