Terras Gauda "Abadía de San Campio" Rías Baixas Albarino 2019 - Galicia, Spain
The aromas of this 2019 vintage are notable for their pronounced fresh nuances of ripe tropical fruit, dominated by mango and pineapple, accompanied by delicate, fresh aromas of banana and white fruit such as pears and golden delicious apples. These aromas were enhanced by pre-fermentation cold maceration. This vintage is remarkable for its power and balance on the palate. It is velvety, pleasant and lively, with an intensity of taste typical of a harvest of well-ripened grapes. The restrained yet vibrant acidity, together with an appreciable unctuousness, offers us a well-balanced, meaty and very appetizing wine. The retronasal aromas again include notes of ripe tropical fruit, with a powerful and very long aftertaste.
