Description

Casa Rojo La Marimorena Albariño 2021

Elegant and complex, persistent and citric. La Marimorena is perfect to drink on its own or to pair with during your next oyster party.

Pale straw colour with green highlights. Clear and distinctive aromas of the Atlantic Albariño variety. Bouquet of freshly picked peach, grapefruit and lime zest, green apple, herbs, jasmine and violet florals. Zesty citrus flavours have accents of green apple, sweet melon and ripe pear for a fresh and lively palate. Casa Rojo La Marimorena is unoaked and lees aged, the strong mineral backbone gives way to an extraordinary salinity that will have you constantly returning for another sip.

The grapes for Casa Rojo's La Marimorena come from 20-years-old Albariño Vineyards in the subzone of O Rosal, Pontevedra, on the banks of the Miño River. Here the vineyards are surrounded by water, both sea and river, and the vines are cultivated on granite terraces with fairly rich, deep soils. After a manual harvest and careful selection of the grapes, they enter the cellar in the early hours of the morning for a cold pre-fermentation maceration with their skins for 10 hours. After alcoholic fermentation at an average temperature of 13 degrees and the racking process, the wine ages on fine lees for approximately 4 months. Finally, it moves to Casa Rojo to age in new French oak barrels for an additional 5 months.
