Eidos
Spain, Rias Baixas
Founded in 2000, a modern green facility completed in 2003. Located in Padriñán parish overlooking Sanxenxo harbor on the southern edge of the Val do Salnés subdistrict at the westernmost, maritime extreme of Rías Baixas. Twenty acres of old and often ungrafted Albariño vines among 100 separate parcels located amongst the gardens of Sanxenxo enjoy a southerly exposure protected from the north winds. ‘Eidos’ are the backyard garden arbors constituting the traditional Albariño vineyard. Selected grapes from vines over 50 years are destemmed, crushed and macerated under temperature control for maximum aromatic extraction. Natural yeasts are encouraged for a prolonged fermentation, the wine bottled beginning in April following the vintage after extended contact with the fine lees. Richly textured and exotically intense Albariños are the result, the salty sea breeze and granitic soils evident in a mouthwateringly mineral finish.
