Wine Description

Unusual for the DO of Rias Baixas, Finca de Arantei has crafted a single-estate, 100% Albarino wine. Situated in the heart of the Mino Valley in the sub-zone of Condado de Tea, these estate vineyards are characterized by poor, rocky soils and low yields. In addition, the vines are now upwards of 25 years-old, which adds to the wine’s intensity and concentration. After fermentation, the wine ages on its lees in stainless steel for five months before release to give it added body and layers.

Tasting Note

Crisp. Dry finish. Notes of pear.
