A maroon color with a purple rim, high layer and densely colored teardrop. In the nose, aromas of fresh, living fruits predominate, reminiscent of wild cherries, aromatic herbs and flowers, together with hints of its aging in oak: cocoa, toffee and balsamic intimations. In the mouth it is fleshy, with volume. It presents balanced acidity, elegant and fresh. A harmonious wine with a long balsamic, fruity aftertaste.
Producer
The Terras Gauda Group comprises of three wineries and one vegetable processing plant: Bodegas Terras Gauda, Vinedos y Bodegas Pittacum and Quinta Sardonia, and the A Rosaleira cannery. The Terras Gauda winery was founded in the O Rosal Valley, within the territory encompassing the Rias Baixas Denomination of Origin. The winery started with an initial production of 37,000 bottles from the 1990ís harvest. Currently we are commercializing more than 1.5 million bottles. Our 160 hectares of vineyards ensure, in quantity and quality, that we obtain the necessary raw material to create our wines. 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. We have been certified according to the ISO 9001:2000 standard since 2000, and this allows us to fine tune even more every process aiming for maximum quality and food safety of our products, within our philosophy of ongoing improvement. 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 Sardon de Duero to the Group in order to create high range red wines from grapes grown according to biodynamic agricultural principles. Our business lines were later diversified by purchasing A Rosaleira an traditional vegetable cannery founded in O Rosal in 1940.
