Elisabeth and her father Carlos started this incredible family-run Adega in 1998, producing their own wines in a region that is farmed in tiny individual parcels. Their estate fruit (only 7 hectares) is grown in pergola using sustainable methods, encouraging the vines to draw necessary nutrients from the natural soils and climate. Likewise in the cellar, this team practices minimal intervention, using only the native yeasts for fermentations, working with the indigenous Albariño variety (which when harvested sees only a small bit of sulfur to prevent oxidation), and allowing the wine to express the different plots of their land without the use of oak, and only sees additional sulfites just before the final bottling. Lively and vibrant yet showcasing great depth of fruit and minerality as well as incredible salinity, this Albariño is a picture perfect and classic example of northwestern Spain’s most famous white varietal. Enjoy this for the next few years around a table of fresh seafood, hard cheeses, or aromatic soups and stews.
