Wine nerd alert! 🍷
Rias Baxias region of northwest Spain 🇪🇸The Galician climate receives moisture from the Atlantic 🌊 and is mostly sticky, warm and rainy with rain ☔️ most days during the year. The humid, salt air is what this viticultural environment is all about. The mostly white wines made here are highly acidic, with notes of tart, green apple 🍏 and white flowers. Most wines are aged in stainless steel and some see new, French oak but only for a few months. Then they are aged in the bottle. You can cellar them for up to 5-6 years.
The Albariño grape is the most expensive and most difficult to produce in all of Spain. #albariño #spain #galicia — a year ago
#algueira #galicia #merenzao #pintxos #donosti this for me is an example of when freshness, bright acidity and spicy aromas are part of a wine's dna and not fake or forced by stem ferments or partial carbonic maceration. Real Atlantic character here — 4 years ago
Cuando se habla de#vinos con personalidad este es un ejemplo claro de eso. Un color a oro intenso por su oxidación y una nariz expresiva que te hace viajar por muchos matices diferentes fruta madura, algo de almíbar, al rato comienza aparecer algo de mar, en boca amplió, salino, mineral, acidez amplia y persistente largo final, realmente muy buena experiencia.😍 #galicia #riasbaixas #spainwines #whitewine #winelovers #winetasting #winesfromspain # — 4 years ago
