Product Description
Details

Produced in DO Rías Baixas, Terra de Mareas Loureiro will appeal to curious wine drinkers and hardcore wine geeks as well.

Indeed, this Spanish red wine is made solely from Loureiro grapes. This is a very scarce indigenous Galician red variety which produces Atlantic-style wines with a high acidity and a lithe character.

Furthermore, since this wine from bodega Terra de Mareas do Nordes saw no oak, the variety is presented here in a crystalline manner.

This varietal red wine from Rías Baixas was produced from over 30-year-old vineyards situated in Val do Salnés, an area with a deep maritime influence.

The grapes were hand-harvested at meticulously selected. Once in the cellar, the grapes were gently pressed and fermented in stainless steel tanks under controlled temperature.

After that, Terra de Mareas Loureiro 2019 was kept in the tanks for some months until its bottling.

This limited production will nicely accompany a cold meats platter or a nice stew.

Nose

Utterly Atlantic, this varietal Loureiro suggests bitter herbs, black pepper and wild strawberries, with a salty and citrusy note and a floral remembrance.

Palate

Agile and tangy, this wine from Terra de Mareas do Nordes carries flavours of sour cherries, herbs and flowers, with a distinctive salinity, slim tannins and a medium-long, mineral finish.

I m a serious wine nerd, so this is right down my alley. Flowers, mineral and smoke, with terrific acidity and a iodine note.
