Bodegas Gallegas Silandeiro Sobre Lias Albarino
Region: Rías Baixas, Galicia, Spain
Bottle size: 75cl
Silandeiro is a Galician word meaning silence, referring to this wine’s subtle aromatics and depth. Lifted aromas of lemon peel, white peach and honeysuckle entice on the nose. The palate is refreshing and elegant with a silky mouthfeel and juicy stone fruit tempered by lively acidity and a saline finish.
Fruit for the 'Silandeiro Sobre Lías' is sourced exclusively from Gallegas’s oldest vineyards in the Val do Salnés subzone. At over 30 years old, the vines produce lower yields with greater aromatic complexity.
Bodegas Gallegas, situated in the Salnés Valley, is owned and run by brother and sister Manuel and Myriam Vazquez. The Galician winemaker, Carlos Blanco, has worked in the area for twenty-five years and understands the idiosyncratic and patchwork nature of the region’s vineyards.
