Terras Gauda O Rosal from Rias Baixas is a zesty, minerally and aromatic Spanish white. The O Rosal, is a selective blend of the best Albarino grapes in the O Rosal subzone of Galicia, which is then mixed with the indigenous grapes Loureira and Caino Blanco.. A greenish-yellow in colour, this wine has a generous nose of ripe peach, aromatic herbs such as hints of bay leaf and mint, orange blossom, mandarin and orange peel. On the palate, it is round with hints of mineral and earthy memories. It finishes with crispness and minerality, revealing its stunning structure, density and balanced acidity. Edged with superb acidity and a bristling minerality this reminds one of a really good Riesling. These are wines of outstanding freshness and life.

The Terras Gauda winery was founded in the O Rosal Valley, within the territory encompassing the Rias Baixas Denomination of Origin. Terras Gauda is notable for owning around 85% of its own vineyards; the remainder of the grapes are provided under strict quality control agreements with local growers. Having this control allows the estate to pick later and more selectively (and over a greater period of time) than most others ensuring greater maturity and higher sugar levels in the grapes. The sheltered aspect of the vineyards surrounded by forest, the proximity to the Mino and to the sea, also promotes ripening. The result is wines that taste exceptionally fresh and bright. They employ modern techniques so as to produce clean, consistent wines driven by their aromatics, but carefully limit the chemical substances which are used on the vineyard, so as to protect the land.
