Terras Gauda ‘O Rosal’, Bodegas Terras Gauda Wine Club

Rias Baixas, Spain, 2015

Terras Gauda ‘O Rosal’, Bodegas Terras Gauda

Price: £16.99

A selective blend of the best Albarino grapes in the O Rosal subzone, blended with the indigenous Loureira and Caiño Blanco (harvested in October). This is greenish-yellow, evoking white flowers and green plums on the nose, and filling out on the palate with fresh grape and apple compote flavours. Laced with superb acidity and a bristling minerality, this wine has delicacy and persistence in equal measure. Made for drinking alongside a feast of seafood – lobster, scallops, prawns, clams or mussels would be perfect.

The Galician vineyards of Rias Baixas are dominated by the influence of the Atlantic. This is a green, cloudy, damp region of pine, chestnut and oak-clad hills with a coastline punctuated by rias (coastal inlets). Renowned producer Terras Gauda is located in the subzone of O Rosal, on terraces which rise steeply above the river Mino, which divides Spain from Portugal.
