50% fermented in stainless steel tanks, 50% aged in French oak for 12 months. Elegant with mineral, floral nuances, nutty aromas from the oak.
Perfect acidity, a bit of salinity. Overall a balanced and good aged Albariño.
About the Vineyards / Producer:
The Albariño vineyards, where the wine Chan de Rosas is produced, are located in Galicia, Valle del Salnés, Pontevedra. They are farms with vineyards planted in some cases more than 70 years ago, in the areas of: A Carabuxeira (Sanxenxo), Padrenda (Meaño), Cabeza de Boi (Méis), A Pedreira (Sisán), Castrelo (Cambados) and Lores (Meaño), which grow quality Albariño grapes. There are shallow but well-drained soils from granitic rocks erosion, resulting in a sandy soil and acidic structure. Both the locations of the vineyard and the soil composition give the salinity and minerality characteristic to the wine.
