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 single varietal Albariño crafted by the Adega Pedralonga winery from grapes coming from estate 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.
The winery being an environmentally conscious company, all of the farming operations performed at the vineyard are carried out in accordance with the peasant lunar calendar.
Manually harvested and meticulously vinified, the white wine from Rías Baixas completed both alcoholic and malolactic fermentation with indigenous yeasts, and was further aged on its lees until the month of July. It was naturally stabilized prior to its bottling.

The white wine Pedralonga Albariño has a slightly turbid, pale waxy colour.
This varietal Albariño from Rías Baixas 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.

Super crisp and mineral, with a note of salt and petroleum. Great Albarino.
This wine stole the heart of my guests because. It is extremely delicate and seductive. Rose petals, green apples, and many aromas which, not being a pro taster, I cannot identify. The palate is caressing and wonderfully textured.
