Variety: Albariño

Estate:
 Morgadio is the easternmost inland estate of DO Rias Baixas, located in the sub-region of Condado do Tea. It was one of the first wineries to join the Rias Baixas appellation, with most of its vineyards planted on experimental basis before the appellation was created.

In 1984, the Morgadio farm in Condado do Tea, near the village of Albeos, was consolidated from multiple existing owners and planting began. The vineyard area was gradually expanded over the years to its current 98.8 acres.

Abariños prominence as one of the world's foremost white varieties was driven by the work done by Morgadio from the 1980s to the mid-1990s. By the 1988 harvest, Morgadio completed installation of a state-of-the-art gravity flow facility at the bottom of their vineyard, including pneumatic presses and isothermic stainless steel tanks. Since the 1996 vintage, the Méndez family of Orense has increased investment in the winery to reach the estate's full potential, currently at 10,000 cases annually of 100% estate bottled Albariño. 

Tasting Notes: 
"Aromas of melon, lime and stream water are just right. This has a crystal clear sense of freshness to the palate along with lime, peach, and melon flavors that coast on fine acidity and finish in refreshing fashion."  (WE)
