Characteristics of Destinos Cruzados Pousada

Destinos Cruzados Pousada 2016 is a white wine made with the Albariño and Treixadura varieties in the D.O. Rías Baixas by the Destinos Cruzados winery.

Destinos Cruzados is the result of a collaboration between Galician sommelier Óscar Cidanes and winemaker Marcial Dorado. A personal project that started with a dream of making their own wines and that came to pass when they were presented with the opportunity to work on a charming estate with old vines in Arbo, a town near Miño (Pontevedra).

Destinos Cruzados Pousada comes from old strains between 30 and 50 years of age trained using the arbour, single cord on brace and high trellis systems. They practise artisan cultivation without using pesticides or herbicides. The grapes are harvested by hand.

Once the Destinos Cruzados Pousada grape reaches the winery, it ferments in stainless steel tanks with native yeasts. For 12 months, part of the wine ages in French oak foudres and the rest in cement eggs. It is then homogenised to filter and bottle.

Destinos Cruzados Pousada came from a coupage of two native varieties that show off the character and personality of Rías Baixas.

Tasting notes Destinos Cruzados Pousada

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.
Destinos Cruzados Pousada 2016 is a sharp white wine with a white fruit, citrus and floral nose with balsamic hints and laurel touches. On the palate it is dry and very flavoursome.

Designation of Origin D.O. Rías Baixas

Winery Destinos Cruzados

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.
