Altos De Torona Triple Varietal 2016

O Rosal, Rías Baixas, Galicia, SpainThe soils of Rías Baixas are mostly uniform in profile based on granite. The cool wet, coastal climate also supports a mineral-rich combination of clay, silt, sand and gravel with limited amounts of organic material and extremely elevated levels of minerality. The Altos di Torona Rosal is a mix of three grapes, Albariño, Loureiro and Caiño Blanco harvested separately and matured over their fine lees post ferment for 120 days. The nose is quietly aromatic, with notes of stone fruits mixed with tropical melon fruits. Fresh and lively, the palate is all citrus with nectarine, chalky, and ginger notes. I love the delicate styling and intense flavours that cry out for roasted chicken, sushi and spicy food.Tasted: 09 January 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: AB 28.00 fine wine shops BC 28.99 BCLS QC 23.00 Producer: Bodegas Altos de ToronaBlend: Albariño - Loureira - Caiño BlancoCSPC: 2863UPC: 8437003519079
