Bodegas Terras Gauda has been producing mouthwatering white wines from traditional local grape varieties in the Rias Baixas region of Galicia since 1990. Their La Mar bottling is made with the Caino grape which is little known outside of the region along with a drop of Albarino and Loureiro to add extra complexity to the flavour profile. The Caino grape is not easy to work with, being the least productive of the traditional Galician white varieties, and requires great skill in the vineyard due to its tendency to mature late and sensitivity to diseases and fungal infections.
The strength of the Caino is its ability to express the true characteristics of the terroir where it is grown. The La Mar is fermented and left to rest on the lees for two months before maturing for an additional six months in stainless steel tanks. Following the bottling process the wine is kept for another year in the bottle to fully integrate all the components and produce a polished, elegant wine.
The result is a vibrant white that bursts with intense peach, nectarine, melon and lychee aromas. On the palate there are ripe stone fruit and pineapple flavours, hints of minerality and a racy acidity. The medium body and pure freshness make this an ideal match for spicy Asian dishes, pan-fried fish or a generous cheeseboard.
