The ‘O Rosal’ is a blend of Albariño, Loureiro, Caiño Blanco, Treixadura and Godello. The varieties are all vinified separately in micro tanks and undergo a period of lees ageing before the final blend is assembled. 

Bright yellow in colour. On the nose, intense aromas of crisp apple, pear, lime blossom and lemon verbena are married with subtle herbal notes. On the palate, the precise and concentrated flavours are complemented by a stony minerality and balanced by a vibrant acidity, resulting in a crisp and clean finish.

The distinctive label is a hand-drawn map of the region, drawn by Santiago’s daughter to guide guests travelling to her wedding which took place at the winery.
