About this wine
Albariño is the classical grape of Galicia up in North-West Spain, where up to 90% of the vineyards are dedicated to this grape.
This wine was produced in a family owned vineyard by Anselmo Tarrio since 1985, and belongs to Protected Geographical Indication of “Vino de Terra de Barbanza and Iria”. Grapes were hand-harvested from south-facing plots of old vines settled in soil of granite and sand.
Albariño is admired for its remarkable aromatic intensity, thanks to exceptionally high content of two aromatic compounds: terpenes and thiols – very typical for light-bodied white wines coming from cooler regions.
“Boal de Arousa” is a fabulous wine, full of aromatic notes of lemon, grapefruit, melon and peach, and it will be a pleasant surprise to those who like refreshing and zesty Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand or Pinot Grigio from Northern Italy.
