Description

The grapes for this wine are selected from our own vineyards in San Miguel de Tabagon and Tomiño, located in O Rosal area. Maceration of grapes occurs through a soft pressing. After the sediments have settled down for 15 to 20 hours, the juice is fermented under controlled temperature between 16-17ºC for 20-25 days. After the fermentation there is an aging time with the lees. This Santiago Ruiz wine pours clear and bright yellow. Intense and complex nose showcasing aromas of fruit (apple, pear, apricot), herbs (lemon verbena, aniseed) and mineral notes. Full bodied, its fruity complexity returns combined with wet-stone minerality on the palate prior to a long and crisp finish. The combination of five native grape varieties to Rias Baixas makes this a wine with a uniquely distinct character.

Food Pairing: fish, chicken, cheese, oyster, seafood, salads
