The Wine

The result of the combination of the grape varieties is striking. This is a wine of great complexity where clear citrus aromas of mandarín and orange peel, peach and aniseed mingle with pleasant undertones of earth, jasmine blosson and hay leaf.

Its powerful structure and character are impressive, filling the palate with fleshiness and velvety sensations. At the same time it is fresh, cheerful and very lively thanks to its excellent acidity, treating us to a pleasant, intense and very long finish. Both its aromas on the palate as well as its taste sensations reflect the good ripening conditions of the 2018 vintage

This wine provides us with two apparently contradictory characteristics: it is a complex wine that is easy to drink.

The wine is rich on the palate and deserves seafood, specially oysters and crab, perfect with Asian cuisine with rich and spicy sauces.

The Terras Gauda winery was founded in the O Rosal Valley, within the territory encompassing the Rías 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.

The Terras Gauda Group comprises of three wineries and one vegetable processing plant: Bodegas Terras Gauda, Viñedos y Bodegas Pittacum and Quinta Sardonia, and the A Rosaleira cannery.

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.

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 Sardón de Duero to the Group in order to create high range red wines from grapes grown according to biodynamic agricultural principles.
