Unusual for the DO of Rías Baixas, Finca de Arantei has crafted a single-estate, 100% Albariño wine. Situated in the heart of the Miño 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.
Pale straw-lemon in color, this wine displays refreshing aromas of peaches, apricot, jasmine tea and wet stone. On the palate, the flavors are equally rich and complemented by vibrant acidity, long length and lasting finish.
This wine is perfect with artichokes, asparagus, shellfish or grilled fish, salads, vegetable frittatas, and any kind of croquette.
