Notes from José Pastor Selections:

"Alberto Nanclares and Silvia Prieto make transparent, Atlantic-influenced wines, mainly with Albariño from old vines around the village of Cambados. Employing organic farming practices and a restrained hand in the cellar, the pair have managed something very rare: the refinement of Albariño into angular, age-worthy wines that express the fascinating terruños of Cambados and Rías Baixas.

'O Bocoi Vello De Silvia' is 100% Albariño from several plots in Sanxenxo and Meaño. The vines are 25-95 years old, and the plots are largely west-facing and planted on a mix of clay, granodiorite, and sandy granite soils. The grapes were harvested by hand, sorted, and foot-stomped in the ancient method, with about two days of maceration on the skins and stems followed by a gentle pressing in a pneumatic press. The juice ferments with its native yeasts in reconditioned 90+-year-old 1900L chestnut barrels, then rests on the lees for 7 months in the same vessel, with weekly batonnage for the first month.
