Mar de Frades Albarino Espumosa Brut Nature
The first Sparking wine produced with 100% Albariño grapes using the traditional méthode champenoise. Surprising saline character coming from its fine elegant bubbles.
Made with the Champenoise Méthode.
Approximately ten days before the normal date to start harvesting, the clusters of those plots that showed better indexes for the elaboration of a sparkling wine are cut. The grape are harvested by hand and transported to the cellar in small boxes where the clusters are selected by hand.
The hand sorting of the grapes at reception and racking to the press machine where a 40% of the must was obtained and carried to the fermentation vats. A slow fermentation at low temperatures carried on for several weeks. Maximum care in the rest of the process: racking, bottling, etc to preserve the richness of aromas and intensity of all the small notes.
The second fermentation at 12-13ºC and ageing over the lees took place in the bottle up to the disgorgement.
Golden yellow with lemmon green hues. On the nose it shows fine, 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.
