Made principally from Albariño, which brings a great structure and a flavourful character, this Spanish white wine is complemented with Caiño Blanco and Loureiro, two native varieties that bring acidity and tension to the wine. All of them are over 25 years of age. They all come from vines planted in the O'Rosal area.
Each variety was separately harvested and vinified. All of them underwent a cold-soaking process and were fermented at a low temperature in stainless steel tanks using only indigenous yeasts.
At the end of the process, Terras Gauda 2018 was blended, stabilized, filtered and bottled.
Drink this white wine from Rías Baixas through the next 5 years.
The white wine Terras Gauda has a very bright, clean, straw-yellow colour with greenish tinges.
Impressive display of aromas. This white wine by Bodegas Terras Gauda smells of pears, pineapple, citrus, peaches, orange rind and mango, nuanced by some balsamic and mentholated notion. On the background, there is a noticeable mineral beat.
With a substantial volume and a smooth, textured body, this Galician white wine carries some flavours of almonds, flowers, passion fruit and a touch of honey. Tense acidity, great freshness and long, creamy finish.
|Our personal opinion||
Intense, full of local character and easy to drink, Terras Gauda 2018 is perfect with white meat, rice dishes and seafood.

Absolutely in love with this wine!! Galicia is a dreamland for white wines.
This wine should be better known and more appreciated. The flowers and the stone fruit bring flavour, and you also find spices and mint. Utterly satisfying.
