Golden yellow with lemon green hues. On the nose it is complex and expressive. First it releases bottle ageing notes and a sea water, eucalyptus and white fruit in the background that remind of albariño grape. A toasted bread and almond kernel character pervade. On the mouth it is broad, tasty and fresh. In the aftertaste the typical albariño notes reappear with a pleasant and crispy aftertaste.

Winemaking

Like the Mar de Frades Godello, this was the first of its kind. The idea to create a sparkling wine that is fresh, aromatic and has the same signatiure salinity as its still wine counterparts. As you would expect, grapes are hand harvested and meticulously sorted. Only the forst 40% of free run juice was used and fermented spontaneously. The base wine is then bottled and aged on its lees just long enough to give it some welcome autolytic character and creaminess, but without overpowering the primary fruit character and signature salinity.
