The flagship wine of the winery, Terras Gauda O Rosal is a beautiful representation of a blend of native grapes traditional to the Rías Baixas D.O.
The estate vineyards are grown in the O Rosal Valley, located on the Galician riverbanks of the Miño River.
This wine’s personality comes from a blend of the legendary Albariño, Loureira and Caiño Blanco.
Terras Gauda O Rosal is the perfect blend of the best native Rías Baixas varieties.
A greenish-yellow in color, this wine has a generous nose of ripe peach, aromatic herbs, hints of bay leaf and mint, orange blossom, mandarin and orange peel.
On the palate, it is round with hints of mineral and earthy memories. It finishes with crispness and minerality, revealing its stunning structure, density and balanced acidity.
