Pure wine of straw yellow color with bright lemon reflections.

Wine "Organistrum", named after the ancient musical string instrument, made from grapes Albariño, grown in the southwest region of Rias Baixas at an altitude of 110 meters above sea level. The grapes from this area usually ripens earlier than the rest of the region. In 2010, the harvest in the Rias Baixas was the largest in history, even more than in the famous 2006. The summer was hot, with very low rainfall. Such climatic conditions in 2010 contributed to a fantastic ripeness of the grapes, as well as its acquisition of a good level of acidity. Upon completion of primary fermentation, the wine "Organistrum" placed in French Allier oak barrels of 300, 400 and 500 liters, which hosts a secondary malolactic fermentation for 3-4 months. Kept the wine in stainless steel tanks for 8 months. Winemaker Luciano Amoedo decided to use oak barrels from Allier in order to maintain the excellent characteristics of high-quality wine, giving it a light, fragrant wood nuances.
