Pago de Tharsys Vendimia Nocturna Albariño is an innovative wine is made from 100% Albariño grapes. The grapes are handpicked at night when the temperatures are lower. Pago de Tharsys is the only winery from the Valencian Community that harvests these grapes with a traditional method that assures that they arrive to the cellar in excellent condition. Since the winery is near the vineyard, the enzyme activity is lesser and so is the oxidation.
Glowing lemon yellow in colour with flecks of green. Fine, slowly flowing drops. Subtle floral aromas appear in the still glass: acacia and elderflower. After being shaken, intense notes of citrus fruits emerge: yellow grapefruit, lemon peel and fresh stone fruits. We also perceive elegant herbal aromas of sage, as well as mineral notes of wet stone. Great intensity of flavour with stone fruits and herbal notes as the protagonists. Fantastic balance between acidity and ripeness. Sensation of freshness and liveliness with a long persistence throughout the palate. Good body with an unctuous, delicate texture and a rich and enveloping sensation.
