The wine

Albariño Altos de Torona is a wonderful single-varietal example of the Rías Baixas flagship grape variety, produced with a careful process combining local winemaking traditions and modern technology. The grapes come from O Rosal, the southernmost of the five regions the appellation is divided into, an area deservedly renowned for the complexity, freshness and aromatic intensity of its wines. Sandy, granite soils located near both the Minho river and the Atlantic create wonderful fruit which slowly ripens during the long warm summer days in Galicia, while care and attention in the winemaking process bring out all its natural expressiveness.

After standing 6 months over fine lees in stainless steel deposits, the wine obtains a spectacular straw-yellow colour with green glints. Aromas of citrus fruit, apricots, and Reinette apples delight the nose alongside a subtle fragrance of sweet pastries thanks to the time spent with lees. An unctuous saline wine with a good body in the mouth, it displays a measured acidity compared to other Galician whites which leads up to a wonderfully elegant finish.

A perfect wine for an aperitif or to accompany shellfish, seafood pasta dishes, mild cheeses, or hake casserole, for example. In fact, its complexity and balance make it an excellent choice to pair with a surprisingly wide variety of dishes.
