The wine is made at the excellent, family-owned, Pazo de Cilleiro cellar which is all of 4 kilometres from the Atlantic Ocean shoreline. The bodega works with around 80 contracted growers and only makes wines from the Albariño grape. Cold fermented in stainless steel and then with 5 months contact with the fine lees, this glorious, crisp wine undergoes no malolactic fermentation.
Fresh citrus aromas with some lightly nutty and white spice characters. The palate has appealing ripe stone fruit, with lime and mineral notes, balanced by zesty acidity.
Great with fish, salads and starters.
