Bodegas Eduardo Peña is located in Castrelo de Miño (Ourense), where they have their own 7-hectare plantation at 250 m. of altitude with a gentle slope and west orientation, marked by the Miño pass and its tributaries. The building of the winery is based on the idea of hiding as much as possible the piece where the wines are made by incorporating them into the land, taking advantage of the unevenness of the vineyard. This fact has the quality of preserving the cellar from changes in outside temperature. The buried environment remains at a constant temperature of 14ºC and 15ºC in winter or summer respectively. The vines of Treixadura, Albariño, Godello, Lado and Loureira, some of them recovered and of very low production, are cultivated applying minimal intervention agriculture, looking for a fruit that gives the wine the maximum varietal expression. This Eduardo Peña white wine has been manually grape harvest. The selected grape is gently crushed, after freezing with carbonic snow, so that during maceration the maximum amount of varietal compounds is extracted. Before the fermentation process, the lees are worked to achieve a wine of greater aromatic complexity, a fatty structure, greater density, volume and balance. Fermentation takes place on two types of continents, in stainless steel tanks and in 300-liter half-grain barrels of European origin. María Andrea is made by macerating the Treixadura, Loureira and Albariño varieties, applying the technique of freezing by means of carbonic snow prior to pressing to ensure that all the aromas of the grape reach the grape must and then working its lees to add complexity and structure. María Andrea is an agile and fresh wine, with good acidity, very fruity and great persistence.
