Arcan Albariño, Rias Baixas
Life's a beach - well La Playa Lanzada
Tastes like: Stone fruit. White flowers. Pears. Citrus fruit. Sea salt.
This comes from some of the finest terroir in the Rias Baixas. Just a small plot of two hectares, hand harvested and overlooking the local sandy stretch of beach - La Playa Lanzada
The family are traditionally mussel farmers and have also been making wine for generations, but have only recently made this beautiful elixir available to the wider world.
Organically farmed with a hands off approach this is a wonderfully textured and complex wine which kicks sand into the face of generic supermarket Albariño.
Spain - 2018 - 12.5% - 75cl
Organic (practicing) - Indigenous yeasts - Hand Picked - Lees ageing
This is a beautiful wine, pure and simple. One of the best albariño wines I have tasted. And wonderful service from Alex !
