Bodegas Terras Gauda, 'La Mar' 2017
White gold hue
Full of flavour, full-bodied yet delicate. It is silky, deep and has a great structure. Its excellent acidity gives it freshness and a long finish.
Intense and evocative aromas of ripe peach, melon, pineapple and attractive mineral hints appear with earthy and fresh, salty notes
About the Producer
A sensational seaside wine with depth and silky texture
Rias Baixas is the only exclusively white wine appellation in Spain and is located in the northwest region of Galicia. Because of its cool, oceanic climate, the Albarino grape from which most of the region's whites are made, thrives to produce light and fresh wines. Founded in 1990 and situated in the O Rosal valley near the River Mino, Bodegas Terras Gauda is the leading maker in the region and is notable for owning 85% of its own vineyards, the remainder of the grapes are provided under strict quality control agreements with other local growers. 'La Mar' ('The Sea') is a blend of the region's indigenous Caino Blanco grape (90%) with a splash of Albarino and Loureira. A complex and powerful wine, we recommend decanting before serving.

There are so many layers to this fine white wine within a firm acidic structure that it needs an equally interesting dish to mirror the complexity in the glass. Ceviche is actually quite easy to make (just make sure the fish is very fresh!) but the delicate texture, fresh herb and citrus aromas are a perfect match for la Mar.
