TASTING NOTE: La Mar begins with intense and evocative aromas of ripe peach-like stone fruit and hints of melon, pineapple and persimmon along with a scent of lychees. Following this, attractive mineral hints appear with earthy and fresh, salty notes. These powerful aromas rest over faint hints of aromatic and floral herbs, finishing with a backdrop of fine, creamy, enveloping lees. La Mar is full of flavour on the palate, resulting in a succulent wine that is full-bodied yet delicate. It is silky, deep and has a great structure. Its excellent acidity gives it freshness, length, and favours its surprising capacity for ageing.
(LOCAL) FOOD RECOMMENDATION: Fish and shellfish, also stews and roast meats.
Founded in 1989, Terras Guada is a leader in the vinification of premium Albariño grapes in the Rosal valley of DO Rias Baixas in northwest Spain. Albariño is wisely blended with autochthonous varieties such as Loureira and Caiño Blanco, an heirloom white variety that the winery saved from extinction.
