Characteristics of Laxas

Laxas is a white wine from D.O. Rías Baixas produced by Bodegas As Laxas in Arbo (Pontevedra).

 

Bodegas As Laxas has been making wines since the end of the 19th century. It was one of the first ones to be part of the Regulating Body of D.O. Rías Baixas.

Currently, an average of 840,000 kg of grapes enter the winery every year. 60% of them come from their own vineyards, and the rest are from meticulously selected winegrowers.

Bodegas As Laxas has state-of-the-art equipment to achieve maximum quality and excellence for all its products, always showing all the properties of the variety and the expression of the terroir.  

 

Laxas is a wine made from Albariño, from the subarea of Condado de Tea.

After the harvest, grapes are meticulously pressed to obtain the must, which is left to ferment in stainless steel deposits at a controlled temperature, 18ºC. Once the fermentation has finished, all the wines are racked to separate them from the fine lees. Then, they carry out the coupage of all the different deposits. Before bottling, the wine is filtered and stabilised.

 

Laxas is a fresh, balances and honest wine. Fruity and flowery on the nose. It stands out for its intensity and freshness, typical of the variety and the area.

Tasting notes Laxas

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.
