Sin Palabras 2010, a great Rias Baixas wine.

Sin Palabras 2010Adegas Castrobrey is a family winery founded in 1983 and nowadays run by the third generation. It is located in the subarea of the Ulla River, within the village of Camanzo, at a distance of 20 km from Santiago de Compostela. In 2000, it was awarded with the inclusion in the Designation of Origin Rias Baixas, becoming a Rias Baixas wine.

Its 12 ha of vineyards are located in a valley, in the bank of the Ulla River. The main variety grown in these lands is Albariño although Treixadura, Godello, Torrontés and Caiño are also grown. The terroir on which they vines are located is one of the most suitable for these varieties, thanks to the following facts:

–    Soils derived from a granitic substratum.
–    Soft Atlantic climate.
–    A valley-style micro-climate in a mountainous area.

From its start up, the winery has always been committed to the quality of the wines produced and combines the manual and conventional agriculture conducted in the region, with the modern winemaking techniques used in the winery, as modern techniques such as criomaceration were introduced.

Behind this project there is a great team, supported and with the advice of the oenologist Marcos Lojo, from the vineyard to the winery.

Tasting report of Sin Palabras 2010:

This is a limpid wine, with a nice straw yellow colour and some bright reflections which evidence the youth of this varietal Albariño wine.

In the nose, notes of scrubland are noticed along with floral scents. After swirling the glass, some aromas of stone and tropical fruits and some milky hints are also noticed.

In the mouth, it is smooth and has a completely integrated and balanced acidity. Its finish is long and persistent.

It is a tasty, unctuous wine with a very elegant nose. It is perfect for an aperitif or to be served with shell-fish dishes, pastas or risottos.

More than interesting.
