Gildas

Anchovy, olive and chile sticks

Gilda means lollipop, and the classic Gilda is a simple assembly of a guindilla (Spanish chile pepper), an anchovy and an olive. The combination of good-quality pinkish anchovies, smallish, crisp, unwrinkled chillies and a freshly pitted olive produce a sophisticated mélange.

Morgadio Albariño 2011

90 Points - "Light yellow. Intense, mineral-accented aromas and flavors of candied citrus fruits, white pepper and honeysuckle, with a hint of ginger adding vivacity. Sappy and penetrating, with very good finishing clarity and lingering spiciness. This is an extremely reliable producer, with a long track record for producing some of the region's best wines." -Josh Raynolds, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, September 2012.

COMPOSITION: 100% Albariño
