Mango, pineapple and lychees on the nose together with wild flowers and notes of eucalyptus. Bright, fresh and vivacious on the palate, the tropical fruit flavours are lifted by a streak of Atlantic-coast salinity.

    A refreshing change

    Posted by WMcMG on 24 Nov 2020

    Our household primarily drinks red, and as a result my experience of white is limited. Apart from bubbles, my go to white is a chardonnay, often a Macon Village, however, I will choose an Albarino and this young Mar de Frades is a pretty good 'rendition'.



Winemaking

The finest Albariño grapes were selected in the cellar. After this, the fruit goes through selection tables and only the whole, healthy and turgid grapes (12% of the total harvest is discarded) pass to the maceration process, where with the help of CO2, the most delicate aromatics are derived from the grapes. The juice is fermented naturally with their own yeast in a slow and delicate, controlled environment to capture the most Atlantic and refined, mineral aromas.

Our Expert Food Recommendation

Ideal as an aperitif or with starters like smoked salmon. Alsoa great companion for any kind of vegetable dishes such as artichokes and asparagus.
