Bodegas Gallegas Albarino 'Silandeiro' Sobre Lías
The different sites were picked over a two-week period to ensure optimal ripeness and freshness. The grapes were destemmed, and each Albariño plot was vinified in separate stainless-steel tanks to guarantee consistent quality and express the maximum potential of the variety. The grapes were macerated at 10ºC for 2-6 hours, followed by a cool fermentation with cultured yeasts in stainlesssteel tanks to preserve the variety’s crisp aromatics. The wine was then aged on lees for two to three months with regular bâtonnage, imparting additional depth and texture. Lifted aromas of lemon peel, white peach and honeysuckle entice on the nose. The palate is refreshing and bright with silky mouthfeel and juicy stone fruit tempered by lively acidity and a saline finish. ‘Silandeiro’, is a Galician word meaning silence, referring to this wine’s subtle aromatics and depth.
We have a lot of Alabrino at NYW but this is well worthy of trying so drinkable and has that extra bit of complexity over most.
