World renowned estate – helped ‘rediscover’ Albariño
The potential of Albariño was rediscovered in the 1980s but only in recent years have we seen it develop into a well-known varietal outside of its native region.
The climate of the Rias Baixas region, in the north west of Spain, is dominated by the Atlantic Ocean, with mild winters, relatively cool summers, high humidity and elevated rainfall.
Terras Gauda, located in the sub-region of O Rosal, produces some of the finest examples of Albariño that can be found. Their wines are a perfect match for fresh seafood and shellfish, a specialty of the Galician region, and delicacy which we also have in abundance here in the UK.
O Rosal Terras Gauda is a selective blend of Albariño grapes in the O Rosal Subzone and is mixed with the indigenous Loureira and Caino Blanco. Its complexity and its minerality is very much reminiscent of a top quality dry Riesling.
