Description

Mar de Ons Barrica

The Albariño grape grows in the region of Rías Baixas in Galicia located in the north-west
of Spain, near the Atlantic Ocean. In this humid and cool environment, it thrives
the Albariño very well. The variable climate makes viticulture complex. To make the
grapes extra protection, the vines form a 'roof of leaves'. The small
size of the grape with a thick skin creates an intense aroma and an exquisite
flavour, making it one of the most sought-after and valuable white wines from
Spain is.

We produce this wine especially in the years when the quality of the harvest is very
is good. The wine matures own skin in French oak for at least eight months. This
method of ageing gives the wine a distinctive character due to the very special
flavour. A limited quantity of bottles of this wine will be produced.
