Finca o Perieiro Albamar Albarino
Xurxo makes this wine from 100% Albariño from a tiny 1 ha vineyard of 35 year old vines grown organically on clay soils over sand. All of the farming is organic, in a place where that is challenging. Grapes are hand harvested with spontaneous yeast fermentation of whole clusters (rare in this region!) in stainless steel tanks with indigenous yeasts. Further aging for 12 months in stainless steel sur lie with slight filtration, no fining, and a low use of s02 only at bottling. This is an unbelievable bottle of salty, minerally, and bright wine from Galicia that may be unmatched in it's precision or quality. A must taste!
