An elegant, complex albariño. Aged in French oak barrels for 6 months, but still maintaining the markedly varietal character of albariño wine.

Wine Description

Terra de Asorei Barrica is produced with grapes from small-scale plantations in the Salnés Valley (Galicia, Spain). The highly attentive care these grapes receive brings out the varietal character of albariño wine, which we elegantly complement with notes of wood.

This wine is aged in oak barrels for 6 months, as small family wineries in the Salnés Valley used to do up until 1980. We have now revived this tradition and enhanced it with reinfoced knowledge, care and rigour.

Terra de Asorei Barrica is a special, limited edition with less than 3.000 bottles.

Tasting Note

  • The Appearance

    Lemon-yellow of medium depth.

  • The Nose

    Medium-high intensity. Dominated by notes of new barrel, but maintaining the varietal character of albariño. Background notes of citrus fruits.

  • The Palate

    An enveloping wine with noticeable legs and a well-integrated acidity. The notes of wood become apparent once more in the retronasal flavour.
