Mar De Frades Albarino Atlantico Magnum 150cl

£35.00
Country: SpainSuggested Food Pairing: Seafood

Lemon yellow in colour with golden hues and bright lime green hints. The bouquet shows notes of seed-fruits such as green apples and pears over a subtle floral and persistent background. The palate is spirited and leaves a fresh sensation. A saline aftertaste, with mineral notes and hints of ginger mixed with lychees and other exotic fruits.

Mar de Frades was born in 1987 and its path is parallel to that of the Quality Control of the Rias Baixas. It is a pioneering bodega in the area and represents the meaning of the most deeply-rooted tradition in the Valley of Salnés, the historical capital of Albariño. It was in this place where the legend of the varieties of Albariño wine started, and where without a shadow of a doubt, the most sophisticated and suggestive white wines of Spain are produced: characterized by their freshness and aromatic intensity. “A sea that is also a wine” – Mar de Frades – is a Galician phrase for Mar de los Frailes (Sea of the Friars). It is also the name given to a place in the Arosa Estuary close to the mouth of the River Umia, the same spot where the pilgrims used to disembark from their maritime journey on their way to Santiago, the shrine of Saint James. Our wine is born from this sea because the enclave which houses our vineyards and bodega is divided by the Sea of Frades.
