MARA MARTIN GODELLO DO MONTERREI
Alma Atlántica means 'Atlantic Soul' in English and is inspired by wines made in proximity to the Atlantic Ocean. The two semi-aromatic whites come from different regions, and the aim of Alma Atlántica is to create fresh and lively whites with lots of personality and boldness of flavour. The Alba Martin Albariño comes from the subzone of Val do Salnés in DO Rías Baixas (which means between two estuaries, the Ría de Arosa and Ría de Pontevedra). Val do Salnés is not only the oldest subregion, it is also the coolest and wettest zone for Albariño, situated right on the Atlantic Coast. The Mara Martin Godello comes from DO Monterrei (meaning king's mountain) and is further inland in comparison to DO Rías Baixas. It is warmer here, but still sees some Atlantic influence, with the average rainfall at 683mm per year.
The Godello vines are grown on the sides of the valleys around the river Tamega, at 400-450 metres above sea level. The climate here is Mediterranean, influenced by the Atlantic ocean. Soils are a mixture of granite, slate, clay and sand.
The grapes were hand picked into 20 kilogram crates, destemmed, crushed and pressed. The must was settled for 24-36 hours. Alcoholic fermentation took place in stainless-steel tanks between 16-18ºC for 15 days. The wine was aged for two months on its lees before bottling, to give it a full and complex mouthfeel.
