Mar de Frades Albariño Atlantico Rías Baixas 2019

The Most Exquisite Expression of Albarino Grape

A fresh Atlantic wine that offers a fresh clean taste. Del­i­cate to the palate. Light and rem­i­nis­cent of the trop­ics the the ocean. 

Tast­ing Notes from The Curator

Pale lemon col­or and lime green reflec­tions. Aro­mas of orange peel and lychee that are inter­spersed with white flow­ers and min­er­al notes. There are bal­sam­ic nuances that end up mark­ing its fresh­ness and salin­i­ty. On the palate, it is pow­er­ful, splen­did, where vol­ume and har­mo­ny are achieved with the bal­ance between the fresh­ness of the fruit and the sea breeze. Gives off an ele­gant and del­i­cate finish.

Pair­ings

The vari­etal pro­file of the har­vest as well as its longevi­ty, let Mar de Frades be enjoyed with rice and pael­las, and seafood such as oys­ters or crabs. It is also a good pair­ing part­ners for lovers of Japan­ese food as this goes well with tem­puras, gyozas or tatakis.

The bot­tle has a label with a ther­mosen­si­tive logo so that when the wine is chilled at the right serv­ing tem­per­a­ture, a small boat appears and dis­ap­pears when it is too warm for con­sump­tion. Use this as an indi­ca­tor for when best to serve this wine. 

Wine from the Sea of Friars

Since 1987, Mar de Frades has worked hard to bring you sin­gu­lar wines with a unique per­son­al­i­ty and a capac­i­ty for sur­prise. Today it is one of the most sought after brands of white wine in Spain, offer­ing a Pre­mi­um inno­v­a­tive qual­i­ty product.

Mar de Frades has a his­to­ry run­ning par­al­lel to the RIAS BAIXAS Des­ig­na­tion of Ori­gin, and is con­sid­ered as a pio­neer­ing win­ery in the region, rep­re­sent­ing the deep-root­ed tra­di­tion of wine-mak­ing in the Sal­nés Val­ley; the his­toric cap­i­tal of Albar­iño. This is the very place where the leg­end of this grape vari­ety began and where the most sophis­ti­cat­ed and most select white wines in Spain are produced. 

Mar de Frades, a term from Galego, the lan­guage of Gali­cia, mean­ing Sea of Fri­ars”, is also the name giv­en to a place near the Ría de Arosa, at the mouth of the Umia riv­er, where a long time ago pil­grims would dis­em­bark and con­tin­ue on their jour­ney towards San­ti­a­go de Compostela.
