This wine is crafted from 100% estate-grown Albariño that is cultivated on our historic property located only 150 feet from the Portuguese border and 22 miles from the Atlantic Ocean. A famously windy and rainy part of Spain, we train our vines in the traditional en parra, or pergola trellising system, to reach a height of 6-7 feet, thereby decreasing botrytis and increasing wind flow in our vineyards. Our granite-rich soil and the cool influence of the nearby Atlantic Ocean make the Fillaboa estate a privileged place for vine-growing.
Color: White gold, with light-green hues. Clear and bright.
Nose: Enticing and pleasantly aromatic, with hints of fresh pineapple, orchard fruit, orange blossom and citrus.
Palate: Soft upon entry, with well-integrated acidity and good structure, the 2017 Fillaboa Albariño is fresh, fruity and round, making it the perfect accompaniment to seafood, spicy dishes and cream-based sauces.
