An amazing Rias Baixas (100% Albariño)

A young and fruity wine that gets better every year

A Vaca Cuca

An Albariño born as a tribute to the country side

The story behind the name…

Galicia. Our land. Land of farmers, vintners and wine-makers, where our cows are often called Pinta, Blanca or Cuca, as our Albariño. In every village there is a cow named Cuca. We wanted to rescue this that is somehow always present in every village, Cuca, and honored them as a vision of the Galician countryside.

My Vinification

Harvested by hand at night in 16 Kgs/boxes. Cold settling at low temperatures in order to extract the maximum aromas possible. Controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks at 17,5º and aging on its lees for some weeks to produce a more complex, unctuous and mineral wine.

Pair me with…

Galicia is worldwide famous because of its seafood. When barnacles, cockles, mussels, crabs or lobsters are boiled, the Albariño grape is a perfect match. Fishes with no flavoured sauce such as hake or sea bream are excellent choices as well as Sashimi or sushi. And don´t miss the opportunity to try this wine with grilled chicken, goat cheeses or risottos.

MY TASTING NOTE

Shining lemon yellow color with greenish elegant reflections. Fresh and elegant apricot, melon and lemon notes with some very pleasant vegetable hints.

Fresh, gliceric, and citric aftertaste.
