A wine born in the Galician region of Rías Baixas, Pedralonga Albariño benefits from a unique, granitic soil that gives the wine a nerve and acidity matched by few Spanish white wines.
A varietal Albariño crafted by the Adega Pedralonga winery, the grapes come from estate-owned vineyards located in the Umia Valley, on the foothills of mount Xiabre, in the Galician region of Caldas. The vines are over 25 years of age, and all of the farming operations performed in the vineyard are carried out in accordance with the peasant lunar calendar.
Manually harvested and meticulously vinified, Pedralonga Albariño 2020 completed both alcoholic and malolactic fermentation with indigenous yeasts, and was further aged on its lees until the next spring. Finally, it was naturally stabilized prior to its bottling.
Drink this white wine from Rías Baixas without food, or pair it with shrimp.
|Appearance||Slightly turbid, the white wine Pedralonga Albariño is pale waxy.|
This varietal Albariño shows notes of citrus, intertwined with some mineral and salty notions, remembrances of wet earth, a dash of creamy tropical fruit, and a wonderfully eerie touch of talc.
Freshness is the word here. This young white wine carries some vibrant notes of citrus, complex notions of tropical fruit, a salty touch and a fleck of bitter herbs. This wine by Adega Pedralonga has a medium, slightly unctuous body, very good acidity and long, persistent finish.
|Our personal opinion||
Though it drinks wonderfully without food, Pedralonga Albariño 2020 is also a great companion for seafood.
