Named after the rías, or estuarine inlets, that flow as far as 20 miles inland, Rías Baixas is an Atlantic coastal region with a cool and wet maritime climate.
The entire region claims soil based on granite bedrock, but the inlets create five subregions of slightly different growing environments for its prized white grape, Albariño.
Albariño is becoming more and more popular due to its balance between freshness whilst still retaining fruit concentration. The Laureatus is beautiful and provides quintessential Albariño flavours of lemon zest, fresh lime, stone fruits and notes of flint soil. Made to be eaten with fish.
