Red Wine Algueira Finca Cortezada 2019
Availability: In stock
The grapes were sourced from Finca Cortezada, a south-west oriented vineyard with gneiss, quartz and slate soils located on the vertiginous slopes of the Sil river, in the heart of DO Ribeira Sacra.
Picked by hand and fully destemmed, the grapes underwent a cold-maceration pre-fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Then they were spontaneously fermented at a constant temperature of 13ºC in the tanks. After that, Algueira Finca Cortezada 2019 was aged for 6 months without the lees. Finally, the wine was bottled and aged for a further months before hitting the market.
Vibrant and intense, this white wine from Ribeira Sacra will pair nicely with shrimp, baked fish recipes and creamy cheeses. It is also excellent as an aperitif.
The white wine Algueira Finca Cortezada is medium straw with some greenish glints.
This blend of Godello, Albariño and Treixadura is enticingly expressive. Aromas of white roses and jasmine, with notes of white fruit and remembrances of bitter herbs and some mineral hints.
Crisp, energetic and structured, this wine from Adega Algueira has a razor-sharp acidity, great focus and an incipient complexity. Finish is long, slightly bitter and gently mineral.
