Terras Gauda is a large and reliable producer of Albariños and other Galician whites, based in the O-Rosal subzone of the Rías Baixas region. This verdant area is the furthest south of the region and this has no doubt contributed to the slightly weightier, peachy style of white here. Whilst large, Terras Gauda is innovative and are doing some good work with native grapes, less famous than Albariño. In this case the wine is a blend of 70% Albariño (fruity aromas and mouthfeel), 18% Loureiro (floral aromas) and 12% Caíño Blanco (structure and exotic fruit). It all adds up to a great wine, fresh, complex and peachy - though think elegant, rather than fruit-bomb.
