Characteristics of Mytilus

Mytilus is a white wine from the D.O Rías Baixes produced by Adega Pombal. This is a single variety wine, made exclusively with the Albariño grape variety, the most cultivated variety of the region.

Wines from the Rías Baixes are Atlantic wines, as is the climate of the region. The different winds that sweep through the region are a fundamental element in understanding the type of maturation of the grapes. In winter, the storms are Atlantic, featuring warm fronts, with heavy rainfall and moderate temperatures, averaging at around 10ºC, with little accentuated thermal contrasts. Spring is usually rather early and very wet, while summers are very dry due to the anticyclone of the Azores.

After the harvest has been carried out and the grapes have been taken to the winery, they ferment in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. The various phases of the winemaking process follow conventional forms, drawing on the success and experience of the region. Mytilus rests for 10 months with its fine lees before being bottled and place on the market.  

Ageda Pombal is a small winery which specialises in the development and production with the Albariño variety. Ageda is in fact the Galician for winery. Among its products include Arcán Albariño and As Bateas.

Tasting notes Mytilus

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 Adega Pombal

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.
