Product Description
Details

A blend of 90% Treixadura, 5% Godello and 5% Albariño, Casal de Armán is made from vines planted on terraces in the Avia Valley, located in the Ribeiro region.

Grown in granitic and slate soils, the grapes were carefully harvested, destemmed and gently crushed with a pneumatic press in order to enhance the extraction of aromas and colour.

Subsequently, this Spanish white wine crafted by the Casal de Armán winery was fermented at a controlled temperature in stainless steel tank for about 3 weeks.

Finally, Casal de Armán 2017 was aged for 9 months on its lees to bring it roundness and creaminess.

Decant this white wine from Ribeiro 30 minutes before drinking.

This Albariño is suaaaaaave on the palate. It has a caressing texture, with remembrances of ripe pineapples, herbs and stone fruit. Long and intense.
