Details

This is the new vintage of Mar de Frades, a young Albariño produced by the Mar de Frades winery from estate-owned vineyards and also from vineyards owned by peasants who work in close collaboration with the company's winemaking staff.

Belonging to the DO Rias Baixas, the vines grow in shallow soils mainly composed of granite. Climate is Atlantic.

After an early harvest which began in September, once in the cellar the grapes of this white wine from Rías Baixas were cold-macerated for 24 hours. Then they were gently pressed and carefully fermented, after which the wine was aged for 5 months on its lees.

Finally, Albariño Mar de Frades 2018 was bottled with its characteristic blue bottle.

Additional Information

Appearance

The white wine Albariño Mar de Frades has a clean, bright lemon colour with some greenish tinges.

Nose

This lively Albariño from Rías Baixas shows fresh aromas of lychee, ripe peaches, green apples and ripe pears, intertwined with notions of aromatic herbs, flowers and dim mineral notions.

Palate

This young Galician white wine by Mar de Frades (a brand of the Ramón Bilbao Group) has a lively, spirited character, a vibrant acidity and a great freshness. Remembrances of citrus, fresh fruit, fennel, aromatic herbs and a salty touch. Long, crisp, delicately mineral finish.

Our personal opinion

Subtle, elegant and versatile, Albariño Mar de Frades 2018pairs excellently with Japanese food and pasta all'fruto di mare.
