Rias Baixas wine region with Eva Minguez
This show was published 19 June 2016
Rias Baixas located in the north west of Spain in Galicia, just above Portugal. The region enjoys a maritime climate due to its proximity to the Atlantic ocean with lots of sunshine hours but its also very rainy creating a very green landscape. Albarino is the indigenous grape accounting for 95% of plantings. The grape is fruity and floral with apple, apricot the typical aromas, on both the nose and the palate. Red wine accounts for only 2% of production. The grapes are all hand-picked and hand-selected in the vineyard ensuring high quality and the wines are fermented (sometimes aged) in stainless steel.
