Alberto Nanclares y Prieto Rias Baixas Albarino 'A Grana' 2016

Native to the Basque Country, Alberto Nanclares moved to the seaside village of Castrelo with his wife in 1992, creating a small winery out of his garage. Today, Nanclares creates some of the most age-worthy, saline-tinged wines in all of Galicia, with vines cultivated organically. The 2016 ‘A Grana’ is acid-driven and lemon noted, with stony minerality and a bright finish. Delicious with salty seafood, tacos, and salads.

Albarino

Specialty of Galicia (and Portugal where it’s “Alvarinho”) grown in granitic soils on the Atlantic coast. Its wines are racy mix of stone fruits and sea spray that cry out for salt-baked whole fish.
