Characteristics of Terras Gauda Etiqueta Negra

Terras Gauda Etiqueta Negra is a wonderful D.O. Rías Baixas white wine by Bodegas Terras Gauda.
It is a coupage of this denomination's autochthonous varieties: Albariño (70 percent), Loureiro (20 percent), and Caíño Blanco (10 percent). The vines are grown in Valle de O Rosal, a privileged site at the mouth of the river Miño near the Atlantic Ocean, with mild weather that's perfect for producing wine.
The Albariño and Caíño varieties are planted at a low altitude, at about 50 metres above sea level. The moderate humidity and warm temperatures translate to an early harvest, more concentrated grapes and less acidity. The Loureiro in turn is farmed at a higher altitude of 150 metres above sea level with less humidity and cooler temperatures. This leads to a slower maturation process, giving the wine intense aromas and smoothness on the palate.
The harvest takes place manually and the grapes are transported in 20 kg boxes to prevent damage before reaching the winery.
The different varieties are produced separately. They are first cold macerated in close contact with their peels in order to extract their delicate aromas. A "coupage" is later carried out with the must of each variety and the blend ferments in French oak barrels.
Terras Gauda Etiqueta Negra ages for five months in French oak barrels on its lees with regular batonages. It is later left to rest in the cold for four months before bottling. It is left to fine in the bottle for a minimum of six months.
Terras Gauda is a very special white wine. The Albariño brings fruity aromas and volume on the palate. The Loureiro brings floral intensity on the nose. And the Caíño, together with exotic fruity aromas and balsamic notes, brings structure.
This is a white wine that will evolve in the bottle for the next four years.
We recommend you decant this wine before drinking.

Tasting notes Terras Gauda Etiqueta Negra

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.
Sight A pretty and intense straw yellow. Nose Sweet aromas of fruit in syrup, apple preserve and honey with slight butter, vanilla and mellow toasted notes from the oak. Taste A broad, engulfing wine on the palate. A satisfying finish.
Ripe sensations on the palate, quince and smoked notes from its stretch in the barrel.

Designation of Origin D.O. Rías Baixas

Winery Terras Gauda

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.
