Albariño Attis Lias Finas `Val do Salnes` 2022


ABV 13.5%

Tasting Notes
This incredible Albariño is clean yellow on appearance followed by wonderful aromas. It has complex notes of ripe apricot and peach, white flowers and a delicious buttery salinity which is perfectly balanced with fresh acidity. Crisp minerality and peppery notes on the finish. It is a powerful wine with great intensity and depth yet a delightful lingering elegance. The body is full and round with 6 months on lees including some batonnage giving a full and rich texture.

Pairs wonderfully with seafood and creamy cheeses.

The Galicia region sits on Spain’s estuary ridden northwest Atlantic coast. This coastal region is wet, yet it is where the fashionable Albariño grape variety thrives on the granite soils. In the south, the Rias Baixas, which means `lower inlets’, supports vines trained high on pergolas in order to keep them well aired from the damp climate, producing fresh, elegant and aromatic wines. The Godello variety is most happy in the relatively warmer and drier valley of Valdeorras, crossed by the river Sil, which is located inland, on the eastern limit of Galicia. Godello’s bunches are compact with smallish and yields are relatively low, which probably contributed to the variety`s near abandonment in the past.

Founded in 2000 by the Farina family, Attis have 12.3 acres of vineyards planted with Albarino vines ranging from 5 to 50 years. Robustiano Farina provides years of experience to support his sons Baldomero and Robustiano Jr. in their management of the vineyard, winery and business operations. In 2011, they invested in a new, modern winery and hired Jean-Francois Hebrard for technical advice and ecological cultivation in the vineyards. This came to fruition for the 2012 vintage, encompassing all aspect of winemaking; spontaneous fermentation, ageing on the lees and a reduction in their use of sulphur.
