Alma Terra, Ponte Single Vineyard Albariño 2015, Rias Baixas, Spain
Tasting Note: Some Albariños can be largely flavorless, but not this one.
This wine has flavor concentration and tropical fruit.
Medium-intensity lemon in color this wine has medium-plus intensity aromas of pear, lemon peel, peach stone fruit, apple blossom, rose and pineapple.
On the palate, the dry, high acidity, medium-bodied wine has medium-plus flavor intensity with flavors on the nose continuing to the palate as flavors.
The wine has a steely mouth feel and a medium-plus finish with some chalk on the end.
The wine is very good in quality due to the balance of acidity and fruit.
You can drink this wine now; it is not suitable for further aging because it will not improve or develop with age and will lose its fresh fruit character.
Bottle Note: AlmaTerra (soul of soil) is produced exclusively with the selection of albariño grapes from “Ponte” singular vineyard. Tasting Notes: Clear, brilliant wine, with an intense aroma and reminiscence of green apple and tropical fruits. Glyceric finish, lingering on the palate, with a perfect acidity, making a very pleasant wine full of sensations. Good companion for appetizers, seafood and soft meats. Serve chilled.
