Terras Gauda Abadía de San Campio Albariño

Intense and fruit-forward aromas of mango, pineapple, grapefruit and lime unite in the nose, with subtle hints of pear and golden apple. On the palate, this wine is fresh, bold and crisp with vibrant acidity and a lingering finish. The 2019 vintage in Rías Baixas began with a warmer than average spring that saw significant temperature variations. A generally dry and mild summer experienced only two strong heatwaves, which led into a comfortable and partially dry September. Temperature variations and mild dehydration led to a lower production in 2019 than in previous vintages. Harvest of Terras Gauda’s estate-grown Albariño occurred during the 17th and 18th of September, and the grapes’ ideal maturation is why winemaker Emilio Canas feels his 2019 Abadía de San Campio is both incredibly complex and perfectly balanced on the palate.

Intense and fruit-forward aromas of mango, pineapple, grapefruit and lime unite in the nose, with subtle hints of pear and golden apple. On the palate, this wine is fresh, bold and crisp with vibrant acidity and a lingering finish. Located on the Atlantic Coast, just above Portugal, with a mild, maritime climate and expansive coastline estuaries, Rías Baixas shares the same mineral-rich soils and cool climate as renowned white wine-producing regions, including France’s Loire Valley and the Rhine region of Germany. The O Rosal sub-region with its unique, iron-rich schist soils and closer proximity to the Atlantic Ocean, is known for producing more mineral, quality-driven wines than other parts of the appellation. All of Terras Gauda’s estate-owned grapes are planted close to the emblematic estuaries of the O Rosal sub-region, and the vineyards they use for making the Abadía de San Campio grow into the slightly more humid and warmer lands that surround the winery. All vines are hand-picked and trellised double cordon royat, instead of the traditional pergola system, to increase the grapes’ natural concentration. Grapes are harvested slightly earlier here and contain a higher concentration of flavors and lower acidity, producing a more supple and voluminous style of Albariño. During harvest, the grapes are transported to the winery within minutes in crates weighing no more than 40 pounds. Upon arrival to the fermentation hall, clusters are destemmed and the grapes undergo six hours of cold soaking before beginning a traditional low-temperature alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel vats with native yeasts supplied from the estate-owned vineyards. The finished wine is aged sur lees for 3 months in tank and then cold stabilized and filtered before bottling.
