100% Albariño from Alberto and Silvia’s Manzaniña parcel in Ribadumia. Manzaniña is southwest facing, with 35+-year-old vines on sandy, granitic soils with alluvial clay deposits. The grapes were harvested by hand, sorted, and foot-stomped in the ancient method, and ferment with the skins for 20 days before a gentle press using a pneumatic press into 500L used French oak barrels. The wine ages in the same vessels for 11 months on its lees, with weekly batonnage for the first 3 months.
The Crisopa has a generously citrusy nose evolving into green apple and white melon on the palate. With good salinity and maintaining a medium-high acidity, it resolves in an elegant and balanced way through a mineral and persistent finish.
Appellation: Rias Baixas
