Alberto Nanclares 'Dandelion' Albarino
A fabulous organic Albariño from Rías Baixas, packed with zesty citrus fruit and green apple flavours, with notes of fennel and dill and superb depth of flavour. This wine screams out for shellfish to pair with it, owing to its mouthwatering acidity and powerful sea-spray saline minerality. A touch of lees aging lends weight to the wine, which balances out the vibrant acidity.
Based around the town of Cambados, in the sub-region of Val do Salnés in Rías Baixas, Alberto owns 2.2 hectares of vines, all Albariño, divided into 12 parcels. After a few years of conventional farming, he decided to abandon chemical treatments altogether and became fully organic, although he also dabbles in biodynamics. His vineyards, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, benefit from daily sea breezes while the granitic soils, so common in the region, bring incredible minerality and freshness to his wines. In the winery his approach is as natural as possible, and apart from the use of small amounts of sulfur, he is basically hands-off, allowing each vintage to express itself.
