Sergio's Pick

A stunning, aromatic albariño with notes of passionfruit, lemon curd, gardenias, almond blossoms and sea breeze evolving from the glass. The palate is mineral driven and textural with a great acidic tension interplaying with its medium bodied, juicy profile. The finish is crisp, and refreshing with touches of salinity. 

Additional notes from Jose Pastor Selections:

From 13 organically farmed inland plots of 25–45-year-old Albariño vines in the Val do Salnes, planted on sandy, decomposed granite soils and are trained in the traditional Pergola style that facilitates aeration.   

"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."
