Ferrer Family Wines Vionta Albariño

D.O. Rías Baixas has a rainy maritime climate and is regarded as the most phenomenal white wine region of Spain. The Albariño grape is the prize of the region, producing a fragrant, full-bodied, yet extremely crisp wine. Vionta is named after Isla Vionta, an island on the Atlantic coast that is part of a national park created to protect seabirds.

vinification
Entirely from Albariño grapes. Predominantly from vineyards older than 15 years. Fermentation was carried out at controlled temperatures to preserve the floral and tropical notes. The combination of yeasts selected by our oenologists increases the great aroma-flavour complexity of these particularly delicate wines. In addition part of the production of this wine has been kept macerating on its lees (85%), a process which brings about an improvement in its structure. Due to the balanced levels of acidity the grapes delivered, it was decided not to undertake a malolactic fermentation. We therefore have a rounded wine with a balanced acidity typical of Albariño.
color
A fine white wine, with some notes of yellow and flashes of golden-green.
aroma
Prominent features of the bouquet are mango, kiwi, peach, lemon, melon and pinneapple.
palate
Soft and agreeably acid on the palate, giving way to a melange of ripe fruits but brought to a peak of green apple, apricot and kiwi. Lees maceration has given it a body and structure with great personality. A long finish, highly aromatic with just a touch of bitterness a classic characteristic of the varietal.

Perfect with fish and shellfish.
