Like the Sancerre of Albariños (meaning super bright, mineral, and zippy) – this wine is electric! It’s the kind of wine we need to wake up our senses. It’s the morning-cold-shower of wines. Imagine drinking a melted glacier, poured over a tropical fruit cocktail, then filtered through wet river stones.
A revelation with Indian food, but also the perfect pairing for oysters. Like lemon juice, this wine can brighten and complement simple flavors, while also cutting through a dish with complex spices. It’s clean, precise, and exactly the freshness most dishes need.
Constantina Sotelo is a female winemaker that’s been making wine for over 20 years. She has created wines that truly stands out from other wineries in the Rías Baixas region of Spain. Driven by a fascination with the Albariño grape and its relation to different winemaking methods and materials, Sotelo only produces wines with this one grape varietal in a multitude of different ways – in clay amphora, cement eggs, chestnut barrels, stainless steel tanks – experimenting with every possible winemaking vessel. She is obsessively organic, using absolutely no sulfates, and still manages to produce pristine, stable wines, with brilliant clarity. Some vines are over 200 years old. Tiny production – only 400 cases made.
