The result is a straw yellow, clean and bright white Albariño wine. On the nose it offers high intensity aromas of ripe fruits, pineapple, apple, mango and citrus fruits and on the palate this wine is balanced, fresh and persistent. Recommended serving temperature between 8 and 10º C.

The Masaveu family first invested in the wine sector in 1974, when they purchased Bodegas Murua, however the family’s first vineyards date back to the middle of the 19th century, in Castellar del Vallés, where the family originates from and where Federico Masaveu Rivell began a journey to be continued one century later by his descendants.
Since then, Bodegas Masaveu has grown to become a benchmark, for the quality in the production of its wines in different DO’s and for the environmental philosophy that they demonstrate and the maximum respect for the land, in which it has its own plantations. of vineyards, thanks to which they manage to transmit, in each bottle, the unique personality of each terroir. This being the common denominator in each and every project initiated by Bodegas Masaveu in different parts of the country: Fillaboa (DO Rias Baixas), Leda (Wine from the Land of Castilla y León) Murua (DOCa Rioja) Pagos de Araiz (DO Navarra), and Valverán (Asturias).
