Product Description

Confronted with an Albariño at this price, there are some who may say this grape has gotten a little too big for its roots. To this we say, you can't keep a good pezo down. The top wines of Do Ferreiro, Fefinanes and Senorans have already shown those willing to take the leap of faith, that they can produce some of the finest whites of Galicia. And that is what we have here. This is produced from a vineyard selection of Piñeiro's most serious fruit that, post-ferment, is transferred into old 500l casks. Here it rests, merrily taking on texture and nourishment from its fine less, for six months, before a further four month elevage in stainless steel before bottling. The resultant aromas evoke a heady mixture of grapefruit, apple blossom, and mineral characters, with a briny saltiness and a touch of herb, too. The palate is plush, almost satin-textured, sliced though by a vein of cooling acid freshness. Tangy flavours of citrus oils and peels abound and precede a lengthy 'Germanic' mineral-laced close. An Atlantic Grosses Gewächs!

"The wine takes its singular character from the most exceptional wines in the Pazo Pinero. It's a style that is far removed from run-of-the-mill commercial Albarino bottling, with their excessive youth and yields, their abuse of selective yeasts, and so on. In contrast, this wine is dry and mineral, fresh and fruity, structured and long. As with other serious Albariño, its virtues become apparent from its third year."
The Finest Wines of Rioja and Northwest Spain, Barquin, Gutierrez & De La Serna.
