Terras Gauda La Mar Caíño 2021 is produced in the Rías Baixas region of north eastern Spain from rare native white grape variety Caíño Branco (98%) with a touch of Albariño  and Loureiro (2%). There is so much going on in a glass of this lovely crisp white wine – plenty of aromatics of ripe stone fruits and tropical fruits, dried herbs and blossom. And just as much excitement on the palate with apricots, subtle pineapple, melon and hints of cream, honey and minerality. Caíño Branco also known as Caíño Blanco is a very delicate grape with a long ripening season but, if looked after well, the wait is worth it as its wines display many aromas and flavours including pineapple and passion fruit, structure from its high acidity and mineral notes. The grape is known to be adept at illustrating the terroir. The vineyards have a unique microclimate that is warm with very little frost or heavy rainfall and the slate schist adds to the minerality of the wine. Though a small percentage of the blend, the Albariño grape brings fruity aromas and adds to the rounded feel whilst Loureiro adds some floral notes. Lots of characteristics that make the perfect combination in this amazing white wine.


Terras Gauda La Mar Caíño 2021 has a really smooth, rounded feel in the mouth from the wine’s lees ageing – not from any oak – and a citric zippiness cuts through any richness from the ripe fruits. This acidity means that the wine should keep for a number of years, if you can resist opening it!


Bodegas Terras Gauda is bigger than many of the wineries whose wines Wines With Attitude stocks but its ethos is very much in line with ours, producing “the highest quality wines with unique personalities, using noble varieties grown in ideal conditions and vinified according to the area’s tradition, crafted with the most advanced technology and the utmost care.” And that ethos certainly shows in this wine, recommended to me by a very good customer. So popular was the 2020 vintage of Terras Gauda La Mar that I quickly ran out but the 2021 vintage is equally lovely.

How to enjoy

The producer says “It goes perfectly with fish and seafood thanks to its good acidity, but its powerful body and volume give rise to a wide range of pairings, and can be combined with stews or baked meats without ruling out spicy or slightly spicy dishes.”


Serve at: 10 – 12°C

Producer's Notes

“The first impression we have of La Mar de Terras Gauda is one of a clean and intense bouquet of tropical fruit, particularly very ripe pineapple and passion fruit. This is followed by delicate aromas of cantaloupe melon, lychee and peach compote. The Caíño has an impressive ability to draw out the finest qualities of our terroir. These qualities flow harmoniously in an aromatic landscape of remarkable minerality and saline delicacy thanks to slight hints of iodine. La Mar ends its long aromatic journey on a captivating spicy note and with a creaminess from the fine lees.


While the nose is very attractive, it is on the palate where this wine really surprises us. It shows itself fully and unashamedly, filling the palate with its surprising volume. This a juicy, fleshy and very big wine thanks to its high extract. It is also soft and fresh due to its silky texture and excellent acidity that contributes to another of Caíño’s special abilities, its amazing capacity for ageing.”


No reviews yet of the 2021 but here’s what was said about the previous vintage:
17.5 points – – Oct 2022
“This is gorgeous! Greek yogurt with thick cream and whorl of lemon zest. Yuzu. Lemon curd and mangos. Richness and silkiness. And yet not without distinctive stoniness and spice; gravel dust and cumin dust, a lick of new cement. It feels and tastes as if gauzy layers of minerality are filtering light and lift through the sybaritic curves of the wine. Quite a compelling wine.”
