White and clear with a colour of hay and a glint of green, Castel de Fornos is a high intensity wine with a torrent of complex aromas. First come the floral hints (gardenia, rose, orange blossom), then the fruit (apricot, orange peel, honey-like) with a background of herbs (laurel, anise, mint). The bouquet is that of a wonderful English garden.
Our flagship brand bears the name of our first vineyard located on a hillside between Cambados and Ribadumia in a hamlet called Fornos. Our forebears called this dry and stony area “Castel” which proved optimal for growing Albariño. The name “Castel de Fornos” was penned in tribute to these early beginnings. These grapes were harvested in September and were grown in the vineyard Val Do Salnés.
The grapes were fermented at a controlled temperature of 18ºC.
Optimum serving temperature of 12ºC.
