Lícia is a shortening of Galicia, the region in northwest Spain. This estate wine is a refreshing and flavorful white that is made from 100% Albariño. Situated along the border with Portugal, vineyards in these subzones benefit from the drier climate and warmer growing season. 70% of the grapes are macerated for 6 hours at a controlled temperature of 8-10 ºC and then pressed. The fermentation takes place in stainless-steel tanks at controlled temperature for 2-3 weeks.

Straw yellow with greenish hues, the Lícia Albariño has strong varietal characteristics with hints of grapefruit, candied fruit, quince jelly, notes of fresh herbs, green apples, and minerals. It is full bodied and well balanced, highlighting the aromas of citrus and green apple, with a long and persistent finish.
