Description

Abellio Albarino – Rias Baixas Spain

One of the most interesting characteristics of the Albarino grape is the way it is grown. The vines are trained on a trellis system so that they are high off the ground. The area is on the Atlantic coast, which makes for a soggy and wet climate. This trellis system protects the grapes from rot.

Made exclusively with grapes selected from the best varieties of the Albariño variety, we obtain an elegant greenish-yellow wine, bright and very attractive. Wine of great balance, for its freshness and its fruity tone.
