This distinctive blend is made up of five native varieties which flourish in the Pazo do Mar vineyards in the heart of the Ribeiro region. The vines are planted at an elevation of 150 metres above sea level, where the soils are varied, but predominantly granitic which retains the heat of the day and encourages the grapes to reach good maturity. The climate is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean, which has a cooling effect, resulting in grapes with good levels of natural acidity. The blend is made up of Treixadura, an aromatic variety that brings lemony notes and creamy body to the blend; Torrontés, another aromatic variety which imparts stone fruit notes with floral highlights; Albariño lends citrus flavours and naturally fresh, zippy acidity; while a small proportion of Loureriro offers refreshing citrus fruits and is low in alcohol and Godello offers mineral-rich complexity.

Each variety was vinified separately. The hand-picked grapes were cold macerated in stainless steel tanks prior to being gently pressed. Slow fermentation took place at controlled temperatures of 16°C lasting one month with fine lees imparting texture. The wines were deftly blended, before being gently fined and bottled without any influence of oak, showcasing the aromatic characteristics and purity of fruit in this distinctive blend.
