Spain: Vizconde de Barrantes

This area is subject to lots of rain, mist and sticky mornings, so the vines are typically trained on pergolas to avoid rot. This particular wine comes from vineyards just hundreds of yards from the ocean, which gives a certain saltiness to the wine, like Manzanilla in Sherry. It is a family-owned winery for three generations.

  • Albarino

    The 30/35 year old vines on the coastline of Rias Baixas in Northwestern Spain offer a classically floral Albarino with apple, quince, and white peach aromas. On the palate it has pretty fruit and a wonderful minerality, the expression of the salt air from the nearby ocean, and a very crisp finish. Try it with seafood.
