Lovely straw yellow color, clean and bright. The nose is reminiscent of ripe crystallized fruit and spices. The palate weaves together spicy, smoky, lightly toasted vanilla oak aromas with ripe pineapple and apricot notes. The mouthfeel is elegant, round and well balanced, with a silky texture.

Wine Making Notes:

1583 is the birth date of the Viscount of Fefinanes, Gonzalo Sarmiento Valladares, builder of the Castle of Fefinanes, in Cambados. They wanted to pay tribute to their ancestor with this wine that managed to reach a perfect harmony between the fruitiness of the Albarino grape and the complexity brought by the oak aging.

Wine is aged for a total of 6 months: 4 months in French and American Oak barrels. No new oak, only 1, 2 and 3 year old barriques. During these 4 months, wine is aged on the fine lees with frequent Batonnage (stirring of the lees) in order to get the most expressive notes from the Albarino varietal. Then, it is transfered into a stainless steel tank, which allows the oak aromas to be assimilated and integrated.


Pairings:

Excellent with shellfish, grilled or stewed fish, white meats, poultry.
