Mar de Frades Albarino DO Rias Baixas 2017 75cl
Mar de Frades embodies the deeply-rooted traditions of Val do Saines, the birthplace of Albarino. Recognised as one of Spain’s leading female winemakers, native Gallaecian paula Fandino crafts wines using 100% Albarion, which express distinct saline nuances, resulting from the vines’ location overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. The fresh and aromatic wine is instantly recognisable by the distinctive blue and slender blue glass bottle with an eye-catching label has a thermos-sensitive logo, so when the bottle is chilled to the appropriate serving temperature, a blue ship magically appears riding the waves on the bottle’s label.
Bright, raw-lime color and greengage glints. Aromas of mango, pineapple and lychee hints together with wild flowers and the balsamic notes of eucalyptus. On the palate, it shows fresh salinity, mineral nuances and tropical fruit.
