The Terras Gauda winery is situated in prime position in the O Rosal valley, in Rias Baixas. The vineyards, which are 150 metres above sea level, enjoy an exceptional microclimate characterised by mild temperatures, with an annual average of 15 degrees centigrade, very little frost and abundant rainfall.
Albarino is considered to be the Spanish ‘gold’ of white wines for its colour and quality. The Abadia (100% Albarino) is very attractive with citrus, grapefruit, pineapple and mandarin flavours.
Great aromatic intensity typical of the grape variety, with hints of ripe white fruit – Golden Delicious apple and pear – supported by pleasant notes of citrus. With a good breadth and balance of flavours, the wine is bright and fresh, with a certain tartness reinforcing the sensation of freshness. The good balance between the acids and sugar give the wine a pleasant final touch, persisting in the mouth for a long time.
