About This Wine
This Albariño comes from a selection of 20-25 years old old Albariño vineyards in As Neves, a subdistrict of Condado do Tea. A warm dry growing subdistrict, the vines here are planted at altitudes between 150-300 metres above sea level on decomposed granite. Lusco use a sorting table to select the fruit, very much a rarity in the Rías Baixas, and the yield is cropped at a very low 40-45 hl/ha. Only 3000 cases are produced annually and the wines are fermented using only local, wild yeasts giving you an idea of the dedication this Domaine has to produce only the finest, authentic expression of this grape as possible, no matter the price point. With zingy flavours of lemon, grapefruit, and elderflower, not only is there a surfeit of cool, sculpted fruit but also a refreshing Atlantic 'bite' and a spotless, lingering finish.
It's a stone-scented, mineral and structured Albariño with a rocky, limpid mouth feel. This is a far cry from the simple, fruity wines that are more typical of the region. As far as density, minerality and presence go, this is Galicia's riposte to white Burgundy.
