Founded in 1990 and situated in the O Rosal valley near the River Mino, Bodegas Terras Gauda is the leading maker in the region of Rias Baixas and is notable for owning 85% of its own vineyards, the remainder of the grapes are provided under strict quality control agreements with other local growers. 'La Mar' ('The Sea') is a blend of the region's indigenous Caino Blanco grape (90%) with a splash of Albarino and Loureira. A complex and powerful wine, we recommend decanting before serving. (N.B. Only 7'000 bottles were made so stocks are necessarily limited.)
A bright straw-yellow in colour. Aromas of green apples and almonds. On the palate, concentrated flavours with excellent acidity. Notes of honey, orange and lime. The finish is lingering and ripe making this a superb food wine with empanadas of tuna and goat's cheese, caldo gallego (Galcian fish soup with ham knuckle and chorizo) or a chunk of aged Manchego cheese.
