ATTIS MAR 2018 | RIAS BAIXAS | Spanish Wine

The Underwater Wine - Attis Mar: This is Spanish Albariño at its most luxurious, beautifully golden and is brimming with depth and flavour. A very limited number of bottles have been buried for 6 months, 40 feet deep into the icy Atlantic Ocean. There, the wine undergoes a remarkable evolution and is simply extraordinary. And the resulting bottle is a statement in itself.

50 year old vines, spontaneous fermentation, 6 months of lees ageing in steel and oak foudres, followed by 6 months ageing in a bottle at a depth of 12m. The sea-ageing process lends an incredible depth to the wine whilst retaining the inherent stone fruit characters and youthful acidity.

5 stars reviews on Vivino:
“This wine is off the charts! Aged 6 months after bottling in a wooden crate submerged in a cool salt water harbor. Light nose but an incredible flavor and mouthfeel. The finish lasts well over a minute. One of the most unique wines you will ever enjoy.” 

Vineyard:
Traditional pergola.
Selection of vineyards with 50 years old.
Soils of granitic Entisoles of Sandy-clay character.
Dominant orientation in the western part, looking to the Atlantic Ocean.
Organic viticulture, in part of the vineyard. 

Winemaking:
Hand harvest picking in boxes of 15 kg perforated.
Selection of grapes.
Complete de-stemming and compress air press.
Setting the juice with cold temperature.
Alcoholic spontaneous fermentation with control of temperature (12-15 ºC).
Ageing on lees in steel tank and oak vat, for 6 months with “batonnage”.
Fining with isinglass.
Tangential filtration.
Ageing for 6 months under the sea, to a depth of 12 m.

Tasting notes:
Visual: Intense straw yellow colour, clean and brilliant.
A fresh wine, with a great persistence, a very fresh acidity, fat and fleshy. Full-bodied, salty, underpinned by a lingering finish.
The ageing under the sea contributes one fresh ageing, avoiding the oxidation and obtaining an unique wine to lay down, long potential of ageing.
