Tasting notes

As Sortes opens with a complex aromatic expression of mature fruit, floral aromas, and hints of sweet spices in the background. Rich, intense, and creamy attack, balanced by a great minerality, lovely notes of pear and lemon, with a long mineral finish.

Spain

Galicia / Asturias

Galicia and Asturias are wine regions of northern-west of Spain, also called Green Spain. Unlike the neighbour Asturias, winemaking has long been a tradition in Galicia. Albariño for zesty white wines in Rias Baixas and Mencia for aromatic red wines are the key grape varieties alongside rare indigenous grapes.

Moderate to warm maritime climate

Rafael Palacios

The soils in Galicia / Asturia are located between the Atlantic coast, the Serra dos Ancares mountain, and Portugal to the south. Galicia is a well know wine making region of Spain, while Asturias might be better known for cider. The vineyard soils in Galicia range from granite in the Rías Baixas area to slate in the Valdeorras region. In Asturias, the soils are composed of slate.
