“This isn’t merely a good Albariño, it’s a paradigm-shifting wine that truly brings out the best of its grape and place. Put it next to the great mineral whites of Chablis or the Loire and it doesn’t miss a beat!”
The tiny Alberto Nanclares estate, in the Val do Salnés sub-region of the Rías Baixas, is an organically farmed haven in the lush, unspoiled place that is Galicia. Having grown his vineyard holdings to about five hectares in and around the coastal village of Cambados, Alberto has taken on Silvia Prieto as a partner to help with day-to-day operations at the growing property. This bottling is assembled from eight organically farmed vineyards in and around Cambados, in the sandy granitic soils typical of the zone. Fermented on native yeasts in a mix of steel tanks and large, used barrels, then aged on lees for 9 months before bottling. Brisk, salty, floral, fruity, creamy…this is Spanish Albariño at its artisanal best.
