Sal da Terra Albariño 2021 White Wine

Package Size6 x 750ml


Grapes come from two vineyards: a site with 35 year old vines on sandy granitic soils, 6 kms from the sea at Carballoso in Xil; and a 30 year-old vineyard at sea level next to the Atlantic in Castrelo near Cambados, here soils are granitic with red clay. The location gives fruit grown here a characteristic Atlantic freshness.


Viticulture is uncertified organic.


Grapes from Carballoso were fermented and aged in a 1200 litre chestnutbarrel. Those from Castrelo were fermented and aged in a large concrete tank. The two wines were blended in April after harvest and bottled in August without fining or filtration.

Tasting Notes

Ripe citrus, stone fruit and white blossoms on the nose, with a hint of stony minerality. Despite refreshing zesty acidity there is wonderful breadth on the palate, with flavours of yellow peach, lime cordial and a sea-breeze salinity lingering on the finish.
