Terras Gauda ‘O Rosal’, Bodegas Terras Gauda
Spain, Rias Baixas, 2015
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.
