Description

Founded more than thirty years ago by Luis Rodríguez Balsa, Bouza de Carril is a small, estate winery in the Valle do Salnés sub-region of Rías Baixas. The focus here is on the Albariño grape, which thrives and reaches its apex in the sunny, Atlantic climate.

Tasting Notes: A classic Albariño, with peach, apple and pineapple aromas on the nose. The rich, round palate is wellbalanced by a crisp acidity, leading to a long, persistent finish.

Serve With: The ultimate pairing for seafood (especially shellfish), it can also be enjoyed as an aperitif.
