Wine Note

Mar de Frades

Winemaker Paula Fandiño is a native Galician who has always worked in the region, and with white wines. She joined Mar de Frades (owned by Rioja’s Ramón Bilbao) in 2007 and works with 150 growers in the Val do Salnés area. With its distinctive blue bottle, the popular packaging has been better known than the liquid inside. However since 2009 Fandiño has been researching batonnage, barrel ageing and single vineyards, all of this informing the mainstream wine.
Appealingly floral, honeyed nose, white peaches and lime zest.
Full, very fresh, fine, salty, saline with a stony minerality. Textured finish with pineapple, green apple and grapefruit lift.
