Tasting Notes

This wine is bright yellow in colour, with intense and complex aromas of blossom, lilies, lemon verbena, aniseed, pear, apple and some subtle spicy notes. It is full bodied with concentrated flavours on the palate that are carefully balanced by clean acidity and stony minerality. Packed with flavour, it has a long and crisp finish.

Producer details

Santiago Ruiz came from a family of winemakers in Galicia, his grandfather being one of the first to produce and bottle wines in the region in 1860. Santiago was a vocal ambassador for the wines of Rías Baixas. Today, the estate is managed by his winemaker daughter Rosa Ruiz. The new winery, built in 2007, is fully equipped with the latest advances in technology for making her clean, expressive white wines.

In the vineyard

The O Rosal area enjoys a privileged location within the Rías Baixas DO, with more sun exposure and lower rainfall than other subzones. The native white grape varieties, Albariño, Loureiro, Treixadura and Godello, Caino Blanco are planted at an altitude of 50-78 metres above sea level on Santiago Ruiz’s 38 hectares of vineyard. This site benefits from an even more favourable microclimate thanks to its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean and the Miño River. Trained along trellises, the fruit experiences optimal aeration and sun exposure, leading to excellent grape maturation.

In the winery

After careful selection in the vineyard, the grapes were destemmed and softly crushed before a gentle maceration took place. After the sediments had settled, the juice was fermented in small stainless-steel tanks at 16°C for 20-21 days. Each variety was vinified separately and then blended to produce the distinctive Santiago Ruiz style

Food Recommendations

This near coastal wine would suit anything from the sea,think juicy fleshy mussels baked in their shells
