Narupa Alalá 2016 is a white wine with aromas of ripe stone fruit, notes of orange blossom and hints of sweet spices. On the palate it is fresh, citric and complex. An unctuous wine with marked acidity and a pleasant and light mid-palate. The finish is balanced, long and somewhat saline.

Albariño, a variety native to Galicia (Spain), was responsible for the explosion of modern Galician wine and was the force behind the creation of the D.O. Rías Baixas, putting their productions on the map of quality wine. With the aim of continuing to champion Albariños, four friends; the Pedrosa brothers (Rosa and Fran), Ruth Campelo and Nacho Jímenez started Narupa, a project where they work different vineyards, some near the sea and others further away, in the heart of the Salnés Valley. Under the premise of protecting the environment and taking maximum care of the vines, they manage to express the beauty of the different terroirs and the potential of the Albariño grape. They have done a great job of this with Narupa Alalá.

This wine comes from Albariño vines planted on siliceous soils of granitic origin and a sandy texture. Sustainable viticulture is practiced with organic methods and zero waste. Then, in the winery, the Narupa Alalá grapes are crushed and undergo a short maceration with skins. Alcoholic fermentation takes place with native yeasts in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, where the wine remains on its lees for 12 months. Finally, before being released for sale, it spends a year and a half to two years in the bottle.

Narupa Alalá is made by a small project that is enjoying great success in Rías Baixas and challenges the myth that Albariños are young wines. A mature, complex wine with a great aging potential, perfect for those who love good white wines.

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.
