Lemon green wine, with golden hues. Clear and bright with intense fruit flavour highlighting pear, apple and peach. On the palate it shows an integrated acidity on the whole, thick and very balanced. The freshness of pome fruit is wrapped by the smoothness of the stone fruit, which gives the whole great harmony, releasing crisp sensations and finishing fresh and clean.
Abellio is one of the labels that is owned and operated by Rectoral do Umia - A wine collective located in the Salnes Valley of Rias Baixas, Spain. The winery was founded in 2009 with a collective knowledge developed over more than 50 years of wine industry experience. They produce wines of excellent quality with the latest technology and under strict criteria to ensure consistent excellence every year. Legend has it that the first Albariño vines were brought by sea to the mouth of the river Umia by monks on a pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela. The sun and the earth in this area, and its special microclimate, allowed these vines to flourish and years later, coinciding with the golden age of Spain in the 17th century, the wine was shared throughout the world.
