Mar de Frades is a monovarietal white wine from Albariño made in the DO Rías Baixas by the winery of the same name, Mar de Frades.
The grapes used to make this albariño come from Finca Valiñas, a vineyard planted on terraces and located south of Mount Valiñas, in the Salnés Valley. You can see the influence of the nearby Ría de Arousa, and its sea breezes that give this Mar de Frades a saline character. There are vines over 20 years old, trellised to avoid soil moisture. A poor and shallow soil, formed by granite decomposition sands that transmit a certain minerality to the wine.
The harvest is done manually and the grapes go through a strict selection process at the table, where up to 20-25% of the harvest can be discarded. The grapes macerate between 10 and 20 hours and after a light pressing a clean and very aromatic must is obtained. The fermentation is carried out in a slow way at a controlled temperature.
Mar de Frades is a delicate and subtle albariño, with some very special marine and mineral touches. As a curiosity, a label that helps you to take Mar de Frades at its correct service temperature. Printed with thermosensitive ink, a blue boat appears on the waves of the logo when the wine is below 11ºC, its recommended temperature of consumption.
