Wine Maker Notes
Unusual for the DO of Rías Baixas, Finca de Arantei has crafted a singleestate, 100% Albariño wine. Situated in the heart of the Miño Valley in the subzone of Condado de Tea, these estate vineyards are characterized by poor, rocky soils and low yields. In addition, the vines are now 25 yearsold, 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.
