Some coastal wines take on a marine personality worthy of El Neptuno and his mermaid daughters, and this is such a wine. This tasty Albariño is made from old vines grown in granite + slate soils with salty marine breezes, by proud farmers in the Condado do Tea subzone of Rias Baixas. This area is the best place on earth for this unique aromatic white variety. Most of these micro-wine farms are near the banks of the Miño River Estuary and are greatly influenced by the Atlantic Ocean, covering and cooling the vines with marine fog. Weather here is very special, with mild rainy winters and spring - but overall this is one of the driest zones of Rias Baixas with very healthy and balanced fruit. Soils are very poor in nutrients, with high acid content and well drained sandy-alluvial soils with slate and a lot of granite giving this wine extra complexity. Trellised in traditional Pergola system - high above the ground for maximum air flow. These vines are hand-harvested into small aerated boxes and rushed to the winery early in the morning. The grapes are fermented in stainless steel tanks after a soft pressing to preserve freshness and energy. Under 1000 cases produced.

We paired this delightful classic Spanish white with a lemony broiled halibut and sautéed broccoli & carrots for a perfect match at Mr. Shrimp, but you can pair with it with all seafood, shellfish, salads and mild cheeses, especially Sheep's milk Manchego with cured meats and Marcona almonds from Spain.

Vinos Marinos is a "Farm Proud" collaboration between Vinos Libres (a great Spanish wine importer based in NYC) and a group of family farms that created a winery in Condado do Tea. As a farm-based project, the land and vines are treated with great respect and farming is sustainable and as natural as possible.
