Grapes: 90 % Treixadura, 5% Godello, 5% Albariño.
Elaboration: Grape selection is done at the vineyard, then cold maceration of the whole grape grains. Fermented at low temperature in stainless steel tanks. Stabalized for some months in vats until it's bottled in June-July.
Taste: Aromas of white flowers, fennel, litchis, peach notes, balsamic and spring water. Tasty, fresh, unctous and structured. Exotic fruit scents, grapefruit, herbs, mint and a perfectly intergrated acidity and a final long tatse.
Color: Very bright straw yellow with greenish gleams.
Gastronomy: Shellfish, simply cooked or rare.
Critics & Reviews:
-Wine Spectator Magazine, April '17 gave 92 points to 2015 Casal de Armán Blanco. "This firm white delivers weight and focus. Creamed pear and melon flavors mingle with herb, blanched almond and spice notes, while citrusy acidity keeps this lively. Rich, bright and balanced."
-International Wine Report, Sept '16 gave 90 points to 2015 Casal de Armán Blanco. "The wine opens up with aromatics of crushed white flowers, unripe pear and suggestions of cantaloupe. There are lovely flavors of Marcona almond, key lime, cut grass and fresh ginger. The weight and minerality makes this impressive wine sing."
-eRobertParker.com, April '16 gave 90 points to 2014 Casal de Armán Blanco. "The white 2014 Casal de Armán is a Treixadura based blend with 5% each of Godello and Albariño from the Avia Valley. The whole clusters were pressed and the must fermented with selected and wild yeasts, and matured in contact with the less for a short period of time. There's more concentration and depth here, it feels serious and balanced, with shy notes of white flowers and fennel. These wines are always clean and nicely defined, subtly balsamic, even minty, but always in a subtle way. Elegant and supple.
