Characteristics of Albamar O Esteiro Espadeiro

Albamar O Esteiro Espadeiro is a red wine produced by Bodegas Albamar in Cambados (Pontevedra), D.O.Rías Baixas.

 

Bodegas Albamar is a family-run winery that started to make wines in the 90s. However, it was not until 2006 that Xurxo Alba Padín, one of the sons, was appointed as the head of the winery, renaming it Albamar.

The vineyard of Bodegas Albamar is located in Valle de Salnés, next to the mouth of the Umía river. Thanks to their proximity to the sea, the vines are caressed by the gentle sea breeze, giving their wines a very special character.

Bodegas Albamar carry out a winemaking process that is as natural as it can be. They make their wines with respect, searching for a classical wine profile from the area (sharp, Atlantic and very mineral wines). From the most unique plots they make wines with more character. Wines that reflect all the characteristics of the terroir and of the variety.

 

Albamar O Esteiro Espadeiro is a wine made from Espadeiro, from small old vineyards distributed throughout Valle de Salnés.

Harvesting is carried out manually, selecting the grapes in the vineyard. Once the grapes arrive at the winery, they go through spontaneous alcoholic fermentation with indigenous yeasts, macerating for about three weeks. This wine is aged in French oak barrels for 8 months. It is bottled without filtering or clarifying.

Tasting notes Albamar O Esteiro Espadeiro

The 2017 vintage has been distinguished by the excellent health of the vineyard and the intense heat. Winter and spring were warmer than normal, accelerating the growth cycle 15 days and which was prolonged during summer, bringing forward the date of the harvest to the end of August. The growth cycle went smoothly, with good flowering and no notable pests. In summer, the drought worsened and in August they began to see symptoms of dehydration in the bunches. However, rains at the beginning of September restored the balance of the vineyard. The wines of this vintage are identified by having something more volume due to its warmth and great freshness. A vintage to enjoy young, or as it is the norm for great wines of the area, to save for a few years.
Albamar O Esteiro Espadeiro 2016 is an expressive, fresh and extremely Atlantic wine. This vintage is a fantastic opportunity to taste the particularities of this scarce grape variety that is normally used mixed with others.

Designation of Origin D.O. Rías Baixas

Winery Albamar

Rías Baixas wines would not be where they are today without the native Albariño grape variety. Although red wines are also produced in Rías Baixas, practically 100% of Rías Baixas wines are white. Among them, the vast majority of them are made with the Albariño grape. As well as young wines, fresh and aromatic, the region also makes wines aged in the barrels, complex wines with great personalities. Albariño wines can either be single varieties, or be part of a blend with other characteristic grapes of the region: Treixadura, Loureira Blanca and Godello.
