Alberto Nanclares Albarino 'Dandelion' 2021


no added sulfur

Country: Spain

Region: Rias Baixas

Type: White Wine

Grape: Albarino

This is 100% Albariño from a collection of organic/biodynamically-farmed plots in Meaño, Combados, Ribadumia, Meis, and Barro. The vines are 25-45 years old and planted on sandy granitic soils. The grapes were harvested by hand, sorted, and gently pressed without de-stemming in whole-bunches using a pneumatic press. The juice ferments with its native yeasts in stainless steel tank, then rests on the lees for 7 months in a mix of vessels. Very little sulfur is added.

Racy acidity, with mouthwatering notes of zesty, ripe citrus fruits layered with crunchy green apple. This wine also has a fleshy texture that brings fantastic balance to the vibrant acidity.
