Pale yellow in colour. The bouquet shows intense aromas of apricot and ripe lemon are married with tropical hints of papaya and mango and subtle floral nuances. The palate brings broad and rich texture, thanks to the time on lees, and a vibrant acidity carries the pronounced flavours onto the long and elegant finish.

The O´Rosal district enjoys the most exceptional conditions found in the Rias Baixas Designation of Origin, thanks to its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean and the Miño River. Our vineyard can be found close to the estuary of this river, 38 hectares over which we cultivate the native grape varieties. The ancient Santiago Ruiz winery, located in a 17th Century building and surrounded by old vines that are trained on pergolas in the ancient manner, is testimony to the winemaking tradition that has carried on here for generations. It is found in a typically idyllic Galician estate, with the vines surrounded by orange trees and adorned with historic mansions and many beautiful flowers. Wine has been part of the history of the Santiago Ruiz family since the 19th Century; the family´s maternal grandfather being one of the first people to produce and label wines in Galicia.
