Albarino Abadia San Campio Terras Gauda, crisp, refreshing, citrussy Galician white. 100% Albarino from terraced vineyards above the river Minao which divides Spain from Portugal. A delicious example of this very popular white grape, Albarino is considered to be the Spanish gold of whites grapes for its colour and quality. The region of Rias Baixas where the best wine comes from is dominated by the Atlantic and is a green, lush and fertile land with high rainfall and punctuated with pine trees, chestnut and oak. Originally mined for Gold by the Romans, this is a region famous for its wild horses, celtic traditions and world class sea food. Terres Gauda’s wines are pure and elegant, coming from a variety of soil types the Abadia San Campio wine is Albarino in purezza and has citrus, grapefruit, pineapple and mandarin with fresh acidity and supple mouth feel. A delicious seafood wine, the Galicians would drink with Mariscada, a seafood fest of Octopus, mussels, clams, prawns and of course lobster!
