Sight

A brilliant yellow colour.

Nose

On the nose there are floral aromas, fruits, herbs and minerals.

Taste The palate is very fresh with high acidity. Fruits are prominent together with mineral memories.
Sight Intense straw yellow colour with golden reflections. Very bright and clean wine with thin glyceric tears. Nose Very frank aromas in which the dominant floral notes are interspersed with a touch of ripe white and stone fruit and herbal aromas (of freshly cut grass and hay) on an elegant mineral background. When it opens up, subtle spicy aromas are noticed. Taste Delicious and complex wine with a nice silky, smooth, very tasty and very fresh mid palate. The notes of fruit and flowers are more balanced than on the nose. Some balsamic notes are also felt. It has an excellent acidity and a very long and persistent finish which leaves subtle mineral sensations. Very rich, elegant and enjoyable wine. 
Sight Pale yellow colour with golden reflections. Clean, bright and glyceric wine. Nose Very good and clean aromas. Very floral wine with notes of ripe white fruit, pineapple, citrus and stone fruits (outstanding notes of intense peach) are released along with subtle herbal notes on a mineral background. Taste Very fresh attack. Silky, intense, fresh and dry mid palate with a high presence of fruit. Outstanding but not unpleasant acidity, which is very well integrated. Very good finish, which leaves a subtle mineral aftertaste. A very rich and elegant white wine from the Rias Baixas. A rounded wine.

D.O. Rías Baixas

Winery Forjas del Salnés

Five counties make up the Galician wine production zone of the Designation of Origin Rias Baixas: Salnés Valley, on the left bank of the Ria de Arosa; Soutomaior, the natural extension of the first one; Tea, spread along the right bank the Minho river; El Rosal in the lower watershed of the Minho (Baixo Miño); and Ribera del Ulla. Each of them has its own peculiarities and produce different kinds of Rias Baixas wines but they are bound together by common factors as important as the grape varieties and the similarity of the soil and the climate.
