Tasting notes Leiras

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

Winery Codorniu

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.

The origins of the company date back to the sixteenth century, when the family Codorniu (through Jaume Codorniu) held several presses and barrels. In 1659 the marriage occurs between Anna Codorniu, the last person in the family to bear the name, and Miquel Raventos, whose surname became part of the heirs of grupo.Al like other companies, with the drop in wine production the nineteenth century reoriented their production Codorniu cava. In 1872 Josep Raventos i Fatjó, after a trip to Champagne, begins producing the first bottles of champagne through a traditional method. At the end of the century is projected the construction of the new winery Codorniu (completed in 1915 designed by Puig i Cadafalch), begin exports to other countries such as Cuba and Argentina, and in 1897 gets to be one of the providers of the Royal House Spanish. In 1976 his winery was recognized as a National Historic-Artistic Monument. During the twentieth century the company managed to emerge as one of the leading brands of sparkling Spanish state.
