Atlantic Way takes its name from the maritime pilgrim trail to Santiago de Compostela that runs just past the cellar front door.

 

The wine is made at the excellent Pazo de Cilleiro cellar which is all of 4 kilometres from the Atlantic Ocean shoreline. The bodega works with around 80 contracted growers and only makes wines from the Albariño grape. Cold fermented in stainless steel and then with 5 months contact with the fine lees, this glorious, crisp wine undergoes no malolactic fermentation.

 

It has a delicious lime and mineral character and is perfect now but will also age well for at least 2 years.
