Rias Baixas is a stones throw from the sea, and what gives the wines their unmistakable style. While there are different sub-regions expressing subtle differences in the wines, they tend to share similar characteristics - bone dry, mineral, floral wines, packed with flavours of peach, melon, pienapple and honeysuckle. Vines are traditionally widely spaced and trained on stone pergolas hewn of the same granite as the soils below. To counter the region’s rainfall and humidity, most vines are trained on a wire trellis called a “parra” anchored by granite posts. Parras are up to seven feet high, allowing breezes to flow through for maximum circulation to prevent mildew and to promote even ripening.

Mar de Enero is the new project of winemaker Miguel Angel Moreira Manyo to mates. Having passed through, lived and worked in many regions in NW Spain such as Bierzo and Tierra de León, together with the likes of Raul Pérez he decided to return to his native Galicia to create his own vision. Here in After, he where he finds the uniqueness of this Atlantic land together with its native varieties to develop his own project. He works only with native varieties, and aside from the well known Albarino , some local red grapes such as Caino , Souson which rarely make it to these shores. He is interested and has developed a number of wines with extended lees aging, using French oak and malolactic fermentation to make truly impressive and atypical Galician whites.

Tasting note: Well weighted and warm green specked yellow. The nose offers loads of peach and other rich stone fruits. Pineapple; candied lemon peel; buttercups and a touch of baked apple remain at the back. It is juicy with some very loaded acidity both at the front and the end of the mouthful . A touch of limey spritz keeps it light and the finish is long and tropical.
Winemaking Detail: Destemmed and soft pressed. Fermentation takes place in SST for around 7 days. Cold stabilized before bottling. Low Sulphur at bottling.
