The flagship wine of the winery, it is a clear demonstration of the benefits of a wise mixture of grape varieties. This wine is elaborated starting from the free-run juices of the native quality varieties from the O Rosal Valley, located on the Galician riverbanks of the Miño River, under the Designation of Origin from Rías Baixas. Its prominent personality is the result of a combination of grape musts from the legendary Albariño variety (approximately 70%) with those of the singular Loureira and Caiño Blanco in the most adequate proportions. The result is a wine with an interesting complex mix of aromas, combining white fruits, orange pips and peel with fresh balsamic notes, supported by subtle floral and mineral hints. It enters the mouth smoothly, progressing toward a pleasant, sticky sweetness, accompanied by fresh, bright acidity, concluding with a fleshy finish in the mouth, long and creamy.
|The Terras Gauda Group comprises of three wineries and one vegetable processing plant: Bodegas Terras Gauda, Vinedos y Bodegas Pittacum and Quinta Sardonia, and the A Rosaleira cannery.
The Terras Gauda winery was founded in the O Rosal Valley, within the territory encompassing the Rias Baixas Denomination of Origin. The winery started with an initial production of 37,000 bottles from the 1990’s harvest. Currently we are commercializing more than 1.5 million bottles.
Our 160 hectares of vineyards ensure, in quantity and quality, that we obtain the necessary raw material to create our wines.
The main goal of the Bodegas Terras Gauda winery is to make the highest quality wines, with their own distinctive personality that emanates from the local noble varieties when they are grown in ideal conditions and vinified according to the traditions of the region but with the most advanced technology and utmost care at all stages of the process.
We have been certified according to the ISO 9001:2000 standard since 2000, and this allows us to fine tune even more every process aiming for maximum quality and food safety of our products, within our philosophy of ongoing improvement.
In 2002 the Bodegas Terras Gauda acquired Bodegas Pittacum, located in the Bierzo Denomination of Origin region to make quality red wines from the grapes of this ancient vineyard and age them in oak barrels.
In 2010 we added the Quinta Sardonia winery, located in Sardon de Duero to the Group in order to create high range red wines from grapes grown according to biodynamic agricultural principles.
Our business lines were later diversified by purchasing A Rosaleira an traditional vegetable cannery founded in O Rosal in 1940.
