Characteristics of Mar de Frades Albariño

Mar de Frades is a varietal white Albariño produced in the Rías Baixas by the winery of the same name, Mar de Frades.

The grapes used to make this Albariño come from Valiñas Finca, a plot planted on terraces and located to the south of Mount Valiñas in the Salnés Valley.

The influence of the nearby Ria de Arousa is noted, and ocean breezes give this Mar de Frades a saline character.

The vines are over 20 years of age, trellises are used to avoid soil moisture. A poor and shallow soil containing sand formed by decomposition of granite gives the wine a certain minerality. The harvest is done manually and grapes goes through a strict table selection process, where up to 20-25% of the crop is discarded.

The grapes are macerated for between 10 and 20 hours, after a light pressing a clean and very aromatic wine is obtained.

Fermentation takes place at slow controlled temperatures.

Mar de Frades is a delicate and subtle Albariño, with a marine theme and very special minerals. Out of interest, the wine's label that helps keep Mar de Frades at the correct temperature.

Printed with heat-sensitive ink, a blue ship appears on the waves of the logo when the wine is below 11 ° C, the temperature recommended for consumption.

    Designation of Origin D.O. Rías Baixas

    Winery Mar de Frades

    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.
