Bodegas Terras Gauda (375ml), 2017, Albariño San Campio

White, Old World, Albariño from Rias Baixas, Spain

 

Fuity, aromatic and fresh.  If you like Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling or Pinot Grigio this is the wine for you. Jane MacQuitty says of Albarino "It’s not a big obvious wine. If chardonnay is the Dolly Parton of the wine world, with all its assets boldly displayed in the front window, albarino is the Grace Kelly – far more smouldering."  This wine is highly rated by wine writers, Jamie Goode, for example, rating it 90/100.

Bodegas Terras Gauda is a family owned business and is the leading maker in the region. It is notable for owning 85% of its own vineyards, the remainder of the grapes are provided under strict quality control agreements with other local growers.

Terras Gauda say that the albariño grapes from which Abadía de San Campio  was made came from the plots at Goian (Argallo), their highest vineyard, where the humidity is lower, the temperatures are cooler and ripening is slower. These conditions provided a wine of great aromatic intensity typical of the grape variety, with hints of ripe white fruit – Golden Delicious apple and pear – supported by pleasant notes of citrus. With a good breadth and balance of flavours, the wine is bright and fresh, with a certain tartness reinforcing the sensation of freshness. The good balance between the acids and sugar give the wine a pleasant final touch, persisting in the mouth for a long time. The wine is at its best when drunk at a temperature of ten or twelve degrees."
