Characteristics of Albamar

Albamar is a white wine from D.O Rías Baixes produced by the Albamar winery. This is a single variety wine made exclusively with the Albariño grape, the trademark variety of the region.

The grapes used for Albamar grow on sandy soils situated close to the Ría de Arousa. The vineyards, which are over 25 years old, are situated in O Salnés and cultivate the vines using a trellis system. The grapes are harvested manually after having been selected, ensuring that they do not break and remain in the best condition before the vinification process is carried out.

At the winery, the bunches for Albamar are pressed and, after a short rest, undergo a phase of debourbage. The must for Albamar then undergoes alcoholic and spontaneous fermentation at controlled temperatures. Finally, the wine is left to age on its dissolved fine lees for 6 months. The result: a white wine filled with a gorgeous sparkle and freshness.

The Albamar winery, founded around 25 years ago, is led by Xurxo Alba. The winery specializes in the cultivation and production of the Albariño grape. This family project produces wines that can be enjoyed by a wide audience.

Tasting notes Albamar

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.

    Designation of Origin D.O. Rías Baixas

    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.
