Adega Eidos Padrinan Albarino 2016. Founded in 2000 by local growers, Adega Eidos produces Albariño from grapes grown exclusively in and among the gardens of Sanxenxo in the parish of Padriñán, located at the southern extreme of Rías Baixas’ Val do Salnes subdistrict. The ‘Eidos’ (garden arbors) in Sanxenxo – 100 acres of which Adega Eidos owns – are traditionally trained, are almost always ungrafted, and are over 50 years of age.
Since 2003, winemaking has taken place in a winemaking facility of efficient and modern design overlooking Sanxenxo harbos. Selected bunches are brought the short distance in small crates, and are then sorted before the de-stemming, crushing and cold maceration processes. Natural yeasts undergo temperature control to achieve long fermentations and natural clarification, and the wines are left on their fine lees until bottling. Eidos de Padriñán is considered to be the primary wine of the larger estate, as it offers ripe and extracted Albariño fruit with clear mineral notes from the sea breeze and granitic soil.
