2020 Nanclares y Prieto Pensares de Alberto, Galicia, Spain
100% Espadeiro from a single parcel (‘Horta’) of 40-year-old vines in the town of Vilariño. The vines are trained in the pergola method and planted on rich sandy-loam soils over granitic bedrock. The grapes were harvested by hand, sorted, and crushed by foot, then macerated on their skins and fermented for 21 days before pressing into a small stainless-steel tank. There, the wine rested on its lees for 11 months, with batonnage for the first month. Bottled without fining or filtering and rested in bottle for 21 months before release.
