Sameirás "1040"

Blend of Treixadura / Albariño / Godello / Lado
A still white wine from the Galicia, Ourense region of Spain.


Big and structured. White flowers, apple, stone fruit and herbaceous notes.

Tasting Notes

Golden colour with some lighter hues.

On the nose the Sameirás 1040 Blanco has a bouquet that unfolds with notes of green apple and stoned fruit but also some more flowery and herbaceous notes.

On the mouth it is somewhat dense and structured, definitely dry. The fruity character is very much present on the palate too, together with a certain bitterness.

The finish is fresh and long.
