Fillaboa Selección Finca Monte Alto
DO Rías Baixas, 100% albariño
A wine to let yourself go and get lost in the harmonious complexity.
Originating from the emblematic Monte Alto plot, this Albariño white wine is made with grapes from one of our highest altitude vineyards, 150m above sea level. We are talking about an inland terroir, with an exceptional location in a meander of the Minho, just before the river meets the Atlantic Ocean. The long hours of sunshine that fills the vines with life, gives the grapes a progressive and constant growth and maturation that, together with the age of the vineyard, planted in 1988, make these Albariño grapes offer us white wines of exceptional character and quality.
To achieve the expression and spirit of the best Albariño wines from the Rías Baixas DO, we work with a traditional winemaking process to which we pay a lot of attention and care. Fillaboa Selección Finca Monte Alto starts with an alcoholic fermentation at a controlled temperature, with 14ºC at the beginning of fermentation and 16ºC at the end. To enhance the true character of the Rías Baixas we use a selection of indigenous yeasts and keep the wine on fine lees for a minimum of 12 months in stainless steel tanks.
With all this care and wisdom we achieve an Albariño white wine with a high aromatic intensity and a delicate straw yellow color that reflects bright greenish tones. When we dwell a little more on this Albariño wine, we discover notes of ripe fruit, apple and citrus, which give way to hints of bakery flavors such as brioche and light toasted notes that gain prominence with time in the bottle.
If we want to taste it at lunch or dinner, Fillaboa Selección Finca Monte Alto (DO Rías Baixas, 100% Albariño) is perfect for pairing with seafood, shellfish, baked fish, pasta dishes, some types of sashimi and vegetable wok.
Fillaboa Selección Finca Monte Alto is an outstanding wine with numerous awards.
