Rectoral do Umia is located in the Val do Salnés region, one of the five subzones of the appellation, which is considered as the birth place of Rias Baixas. The rugged coastline is known to be the coolest and dampest of the region. Its soils are composed of hard granite with a very thin alluvial top soil, very similar to the Muscadet region of Atlantic France. The name “Salnés” comes from the salt flats that once covered the area (sal = salt). During the Middle Ages, the valley’s inhabitants collected salt and used it for preserving the fish that left their ports on merchant ships. The Latin name for the region was Territorium Salinense, which gradually became Salnés in Galician. The pergola trained vineyards are pratically at sea level, on gentle slopes or on the plain close to the Umia River.

100% Albariño. The Pergola trained vineyards are located near the town of Arousa in Val de Salnes. Hand harvested. Natural fermentation in stainless steel tanks at very low temperature to preserve all the aromatics. Aged 9 months on the lees in tanks.

A fresh and crisp albariño with green apples, kiwis, grapefruit and water lilies on the nose. Medium-bodied, with refreshing saline and fresh herb undertones. Lovely energy and balance.
