Kentia Albarino Albarino 2016
Rías Baixas boasts a number of high-quality grapes; chief among them is Albariño, occupying more than 90% of the DO’s vineyard area. The soils are largely granite, with some chalk and clay. The earth here offers lots of minerals but few nutrients, making it perfect for wine-growing. Old vineyards planted in Pérgola system, traditional from this area, produce the grapes of Albariño with a high level of acidity given the proximity with the Atlantic ocean and the high level of rains, this wine will continue to develop complexity with the bottle age.
The wine appears pale gold or straw-colored, often with tinges of green. Fresh, crisp and fragrant with a virtual shopping cart of flavors and aromas: melon, pear, peach, tropical fruit, subtle herbaceous element combine magnificently to produce this enticing silky white with pleasing minerality and refreshing acidity. Balanced, distinctive and elegant.
Ideal match to delicate fish and shellfish.
