Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Albamar O Esteiro Mencía is a red wine produced by Bodegas Albamar in Cambados (Pontevedra), D.O.Rías Baixas.

 

Bodegas Albamar is a family-run winery that started to make wines in the 90s. However, it was not until 2006 that Xurxo Alba Padín, one of the sons, was appointed as the head of the winery, renaming it Albamar.

The vineyard of Bodegas Albamar is located in Valle de Salnés, next to the mouth of the Umía river. Thanks to their proximity to the sea, the vines are caressed by the gentle sea breeze, giving their wines a very special character.

Bodegas Albamar carry out a winemaking process that is as natural as it can be. They make their wines with respect, searching for a classical wine profile from the area (sharp, Atlantic and very mineral wines). From the most unique plots they make wines with more character. Wines that reflect all the characteristics of the terroir and of the variety.

 

Albamar O Esteiro Mencía is a wine made from Mencía, from small old vineyards distributed throughout Valle de Salnés.

Harvesting is carried out manually, selecting the grapes in the vineyard. Once the grapes arrive at the winery, they go through spontaneous alcoholic fermentation with indigenous yeasts, macerating for about three weeks. This wine is aged in French oak barrels for 8 months. It is bottled without filtering or clarifying.

 

Albamar O Esteiro Mencía is a fluid, honest and fresh wine. The vineyards proximity to the sea gives this wine quite an interesting salty character. Very few bottles.

Pictures and situation Albamar
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.
