When discussing the Atlantic influence on specific Galician wines, it's essential to mention ALGUEIRA FINCAS. This wine is made using distinctly Atlantic grape varieties such as Caíño and Sousón. The grapes are stomped by foot, then undergo a 15-day maceration process and are aged for 12-15 months in chestnut and French oak barrels of 225 and 300 liters. ALGUEIRA FINCAS has a garnet red color with a noticeable violet rim of medium intensity. The wine features balsamic notes of menthol, red fruit, and orange rust. It also possesses a spicy character reminiscent of the Galician Atlantic forest, with hints of oak inflorescences and nettle. On the palate, the wine is very fresh and acidic, with a crisp, citrusy, and persistent tannin, providing a substantial finish.
