Pulpo Albarino (Spain)
Pulpo is one of the most recent launches of Pagos del Rey. A white wine made from “albariño” grapes carefully grown in the vineyards of the región “Val do Salnés” (Salnes Valley) in Galicia, which belongs to Rias Baixas appelation.
The wine making process of this wine is strictly supervised. Fermentation is done at a controlled temperature of 16ºC in stainless steel tanks.
The result is a bright wine, pale lemon in colour with hints of apple green. A delicate wine with aromas of white flowers, hints of peaches and apricots lead to a fresh, fruity palate and an enjoyable finish.
The recommendation is to be served chilled, perfect with seafood, grilled octopus (“pulpo” in Spanish), and other typical dishes based on seafood, oysters, or mussels.
