Characteristics of Terras Gauda La Mar

La Mar is a white wine produced by Bodegas Terras Gauda in the Rías Baixes region. The wine is a blend of Caíño Blanco (85%), Albariño (10%) and Loureiro (5%).

Caíno Blanco grapes mature at a later stage. They are a very delicate and sensitive to fungi and bacteria, which means there must be intervention from the vineyard. But in turn this is a variety capable of embodying the maximum characteristics of the terroir.

The harvest is carried out manually, with the grapes being transported to the winery in small 20kg capacity boxes to ensure that they do not break and that they arrive in the best condition. The different grape varieties are through the vinification process seperately. They undergo cold maceration, which takes a little longer for the Caíno grapes, a variety with a higher percentage of skin, in order to take advantage of the extraction of the aromas is performed.

Once fermentation is carried out, and the 3 varieties have been blended, La Mar sits on its lees for three months with regular battonages. It is then allowed to stand at a low temperature for 6 months before being bottled, where it then again rests for another 7 before being put onto the market.  

We recommend that you open this wine some time before consumption. La Mar will have an evolution in bottle over the next three years, gaining complexity and maturity.

Tasting notes Terras Gauda La Mar

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.
Terras Gauda La Mar 2016 is a profiled, intense and deep white wine. On the nose, this vintage stands out for the aromas of tropical white fruit, with floral notes. In the mouth, it is unctuous, with quite easy to drink and very long.
Sight Beautiful bright yellow with some golden highlights. Nose Intense nose. Tropical fruits like mango and pineapple with tangerine and apple. Notes of earth, minerals and herbs. Taste The palate is a very nice. Tasty, creamy. With a fresh entry. Good acidity and structure. Spacious, with a long finish with an interesting bitterness.
Sight Very intense yellow with a plentiful tear. Nose The first impression on the nose is reminiscent of tropical fruit such as mango and pineapple. A mineral wine with pleasant notes of soil, aromatic herbs and an engulfing creamy background. Taste A full wine on the palate, with high unctuosity good structure and a full body. A broad and tantalising wine with a very long finish.

    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.
