THE BRAVERY OF DOING THINGS DIFFERENTLY
What makes one wine different from the rest? What is the main difference between a good wine and one which is amazing, brave, daring? The answer is never simple nor is there one single answer. Creating an iconic brand is a question of patience, of time and also of bravery. It has never been easy to reach the top of the mountain and for this reason, the path, often rocky and strewn with obstacles, is a combination of incidents and predicaments in the course of a winery in its incessant aim to achieve enological excellence.
That of Mar de Frades is possibly a paradigm shift. Being born into and remaining in an idyllic setting is an extraordinarily beneficial starting point. No more, no less. Yet to reach where others fail to reach, it is necessary to do things that others would never dare to do. Thus the bravery of enclosing this essence of Albariño in an iconic blue bottle or that of adding the heat-sensitive label to the front to display the ideal moment to drink the wine.
Trailblazing decisions which define the personality of a wine which in reality conceals its path from its beginnings in the actual vineyard. A unique setting, surrounded by eucalyptus trees facing the Arousa Estuary, which embellishes with its Atlantic breeze the harshness of the privileged Galicia climate.
A place where the Albariño grape manifests itself fully and where it is gently walked to the winery, symbol of modern tradition, of the unconquerable avant-garde. It is here that the result of months of work is transformed into a lovely elixir inaccessible for undemanding palettes and where the secret silent enological work finally bears its fruits.
Fresh, innovative, exotic, different. A wine, made of Atlantic, which daringly displays its powerful seal, showing its irresistible personality, converting an iconic wine into something unattainable.
