Variety: 100 % Albariño
Classification: D.O. Pago
Alcohol: 12’5% Vol.
This innovative wine is made from Albariño grapes grown in our Pago. The harvest of these grapes is handmade at night when the temperatures are lower. Pago de Tharsys is the only winery from the Valencian Community that harvests these grapes with a traditional method that assures that they arrive to the cellar in excellent conditions.Since the winery is near the vineyard, the enzyme activity is lesser and so is the oxydation.
Appearance: Glowing lemon yellow colou with flecks of green. Fine, slowly flowing drops.
Nose: Subtle floral aromas appear in the still glass: acacia and elder-flower. After being shaken, intense notes of citrus fruits emerge: yellow grapefruit, lemon peel and fresh stone fruits. We also perceive elegant herbal aromas of sage and savory, as well as mineral notes of wet stone.
Mouth: Great intensity of flavour being the stone fruits and the herbal flavours the protagonists. Fantastic balance between acidity and ripeness. Sensation of freshness and liveliness with a long persistence throughout the palate. Good body with an unctuous, delicate texture a rich and enveloping sensation.
Serving: Serve between 6ºC and 8ºC in medium-sized glasses with a wide body, slightly narrower at the top. An ideal wine to serve with white fish: turbot, sole, bream, etc., boiled shellfish, octopus, fish and veggie rice/pasta dishes.
Note: The Albariño grape variety is originally from Galicia, and was brought to the region of Requena in the 60’s by Jesús Requena, a winemaker from Siete Aguas, who at the time trained Galician producers to make quality white wine using that grape variety. Our Albariño vines are from that old vineyard in Siete Aguas. This variety is an emotional memory of the origins of the founder of Pago de Tharsys, Vicente García, who began his career tea-ching enology in Galicia.
