The perfect Albariño (or as we like to say: Albaronie!)

===

From 65 years old vines on a flat surface of granite bedrock and a thin layer of topsoil the wine is naturally fermented low and slow in a cold cellar for about a month. 7 Months aging sur lie in 50-% steel, 25% foudre, and 25% old 225l Barrels. Partial malolactic fermentation occurs naturally in some barrels.

===

Cousin of local viticultural legend, Rodrigo Méndez, Pedro Méndez wears two hats with full-time work in his family’s vineyards and their restaurant during the summer. Located in the Val do Salnés subzone of Galicia’s Rías Baixas, he has medium-aged vines and pre-phylloxera Albariño vines that are nearly two-hundred years old that look more like trees. These ancient plants fill his full-bodied Albariños with structure and a pure citrusy, salty, minerally, high acidity power that only Albariño possesses. He also makes a compelling range of red wines with Mencía and Caíño.
