Organistrum

Produced with a selection of grapes picked up from southwest parcels, Organistrum is called as a particular musical instrument which requires two people to be played. Nowadays there are only two pieces and one of them belongs to the Grupo de Música Martín Códax.

A wine like this one, deserved  a name like this. Gallaecia is the name used to romans to call the northeast region of Iberian Peninsula. Nowadays is known as Galicia.

Gallaecia means the establishment of albariño as one of the best and versatile grapes of the world.  It is the result of the vinification of overippen grapes with a high percentage of “botrytis noble”. Gallaecia is the consequence of many years cultivating albariño.

Intense perfume of raisins, dry fruit, hints of honey and bitter orange marmalade together with a subtle aroma typical of botrytis; although the main characteristics of the variety can be sensed.
