The Winery and Vineyards

The winery and vineyards of Terras Gauda wine cellars both lie in a privileged landscape in the O Rosal valley, close to the mouth of the river Miño in the A Guarda area.The vineyards, which are between 50 and 150 metres above sea level, enjoy an exceptional microclimate characterised by mild temperatures, with an annual average of 15º C, very little frost and abundant rainfall. This microclimate is ideal for ripening, with a high sugar content & a lower acidity level than in other parts of the Rías Baixas designation of origin area that lie further to the north, where the quality of the wine is more variable because of the climate.

Signature Wine

Terras Gauda is the flagship wine of the winery, it is a clear demonstration of the benefits of a wise mixture of grape varieties.This wine is elaborated starting from the free-run juices of the native quality varieties from the O ROSAL Valley, located on the Galician riverbanks of the Miño River, very close to the river mouth in the lands of La Guardia, in front of the neighbouring Portugal, under the Designation of Origin from Rías Baixas.Its prominent personality is the result of a combination of grape musts from the legendary ALBARIÑO variety (approximately 70%) with those of the singular LOUREIRA and CAIÑO BLANCO in the most adequate proportions.For Terras Gauda 2009, for which harvesting began on 21 September, we selected the albariño grapes from the plots at Eiras-Bostelo, our lowestlying vineyard, with high humidity, south-facing and warmer temperatures,producing an albariño-based wine that is highly concentrated, less acidic and with considerable body.Our loureiro grapes, harvested in late September, come from high-lying vineyards, living us freshness, with high floral intensity and smoothness in the mouth.Our caiño grapes, which were harvested between 2 and 3 October, are grown in the same area as the albariño grapes, where the humidity and temperature conditions are optimal for extracting all their flavour potential.

The result is a wine with an interesting complex mix of aromas, combining white fruits, orange pips and peel with fresh balsamic notes, supported by subtle floral and mineral hints.It enters the mouth smooth progressing towards a pleasant, sticky sweetness , accompanied by fresh, bright acidity, concluding with fleshy finish in the mouth, long and creamy. Recommended serving temperature 10º to 12ºC.
