Reviews of purchase Terras Gauda "O Rosal" Etiqueta Negra, 2006
Wine intense straw yellow color.
Taste wine elegant, sweet, fresh, with smooth tannins, hints of wood and strawberries, lingering aftertaste with notes of ripe fruit and toast.
The aroma of wine tones of peaches and white flowers entwined with hints of melted butter and nuances of smoke from new barrels.
Wine is an excellent aperitif and goes well with fish, seafood, white meats and sausages.
In contrast to the "Terras Gauda O Rosal", "Terras Gauda Etiqueta Negra" is fermented and aged on the lees in new barrels of French and American oak for four months. Hence the appearance of notes of smoky flavor in wine, and beautiful shades of precious wood on the palate.
Winery "Terras Gauda" was established in 1990 in the city of Al Eyras in the famous wine region of Rias Baixas. Its vineyards are spread in a picturesque valley about Rosal, near the mouth of the river Miño. Exceptional microclimate with mild temperatures, lack of frost and abundant rainfall is ideal for high-quality ripening grapes with high sugar content and balanced acidity, unlike other northern areas of the Rias Baixas with more variable climate. 85% of the berries for their wines "Terras Gauda" grows on its own vineyards, the rest is sold under strict quality control from other local producers. Winery owns about 80 hectares of vineyards, divided between varieties Albariño (70%), Loureiro (15%), Cain Blanc (10%) and Treyschadura (5%). "Terras Gauda" specializes in white wines, but now has an experimental farm plantation for red grapes.
