2022 Nanclares y Prieto 'Dandelion' Albarino, Rias Baixas, Spain
100% Albariño from a collection of plots in Meaño, Combados, Ribadumia, Meis, and Barro. The vines are 25-45 years old, and the plots are largely west facing and planted on sandy granitic soils. The grapes were harvested by hand, sorted, and gently pressed without destemming in whole-bunches using a pneumatic press. The juice ferments with its native yeasts in stainless steel tank, then rests on the lees for 7 months in a mix of vessels, with weekly batonnage for the first month.
