Characteristics of Xión

Xión is a white wine produced by the winery Attis Bodegas y Viñedo in Dena, D.O.Rías Baixas.

 

Attis Bodegas y Viñedos is a family-run winery located in the centre of Val de Salnes, a small village located on the hillside of mount Penaguda, opposite the Arousa and Pontevedra estuaries.

Right next to the house where they made their first wines in a traditional way, they built this winery that is completely integrated in the surroundings. Here, they vinified their first vintage in 2012.

Attis Bodegas y Viñedos own and cultivate 5 hectares of vines divided into small plots located between 100 and 400 metres of altitude. The soils are loamy-sandy with a lot of stones, and the climate has an Atlantic influence, with mild temperatures, and high rainfall that is well distributed. In the summer, however, rain levels tend to decrease.

Their wines honestly respect and enhance the variety, gathering all its features like its acidity, its minerality and its fruitiness.

 

Xión is a wine made from Albariño, from vineyards of an average of 15 years, located on granitic soils with sandy-clay areas.

Grapes are manually harvested and placed in 15-kg boxes, with manual grape selection when they enter the winery. Once the grapes are destemmed and pressed, they go through a cold settling process. They ferment with local yeasts in stainless steel deposits at a controlled temperature that ranges between 12ºC and 15ºC. Once the alcoholic fermentation has finished, they rest with their fine lees for 3 months. Before being bottled, it is clarified and filtered.

 

Xión is a fresh, lingering and sweet wine. It stands out for its aromatic intensity with notes of ripe white fruit and citric hints.

Tasting notes Xión

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 Attis Bodegas y Viñedos

    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.
