Rías Baixas Sub-Region: Soutomaior DO

On a map, Soutomaior evokes a tiny amoeba shaped like a hat. Yet this smallest sub-region of Rias Baixas, recognized in 1996, produces Albariño of great heart and finesse. The estuary known as Rías de Vigo ends at the bottom of the hills on which Soutomaior begins. Thus, the vineyards enjoy the cooling coastal influence of the sea. The light and sandy soils over granite bedrock serve the grape perfectly — producing elegant, mineral-tinged, peach-scented Albariño.
