In 2003, a young group of artisan winemakers set out to unify smaller family-owned vineyards growing Albariño and local varietals in Rías Baixas. The plots are owned by families who indeed still work their individual sites under the leadership of winemaker Jorge Hervella, an award-winning oenologist. The granite and sandy soil make for excellent drainage on south-facing, sunny soils, so sunny early harvest is a necessity. Citrusy, minerally, lime, green melon and green banana. One is stocked in my fridge at all times for any unexpected house guests.
