Eido da Salgosa Rosal is a white wine produced in the Rías Baixas DO, subzone O'Rosal, with Albariño, Loureira, Cagarrucho, Treixadura and Caño by the Cazapitas winery.
O Rosal is a valley located at the end of the Miño river, and extends beyond the administrative boundaries of the municipality that bears its name. This valley is a very special region within the Rías Baixas wine region. While in the whole Rías Baixas region, Albariño is the most prominent grape variety, in the Rosal region, Albariño is always blended with other varieties, which makes this white wine one of the most outstanding examples of this traditional blend.
In the case of Eido da Salgosa Rosal, we find a coupage that is composed of 70% albariño, 15% loureira, 5% cagarrucho, 5% treixadura and 5% caíño. During the winemaking process, the grapes are taken to the winery and pressed in a pneumatic press without destemming. The must is cooled for 24 hours and then racked. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature. The wine spends 4 months in contact with fine lees and then rests for a further 4 months on the lees before being gently filtered.
