2021 Benito Santos Albariño
Benito Santos is a central figure in the modern history of Albariño and the Rias Baixas DO. He began working in his grandfather’s vineyards in the 1930’s making wine for his bar.
The three Albariño vineyards in Val do Salnes are named after their neighbouring ancient churches and are certified organic,. Vines are trained on the traditional trellis and are picked by hand in small trays. Winemaking uses only natural yeasts and minimal sulphur.
Granitic sandy clay soils and trellised vines of 30 years age. Hand-picked and matured for 6 months on its lees before bottling.
Tasting Note: Mineral, and structured, with ample fruit and great length; the wine carries an almost saline quality to highlight the freshness of a cool sea breeze.
Origin: Rias Baixas, Spain
Blend: Albariño (100%)
