Benito Santos Albarino

£19.95

This is a great Albarino, with lots of character, coming from organically farmed vines, a hard task in rainy mildew prone vines of Galicia. It exudes delicate notes of peach, followed by a touch of citrus and a well-defined palate, there is just a touch of salinity on the finish. Pairs well with light cheeses and delicate fish dishes.

Description

Benito Santos is a central figure in the modern history of Albariño and the Rias Baixas DO. He began working in his grandfather’s vineyards in the 1930’s making wine for his bar. In the 1960’s he repeatedly won prizes in the Annual Fiesta de Albarino in Cambados and was instrumental in the creation of the DO in the 1980’s. The winery was built in 1979. He is buried nearby in the grounds of the Monastery of Calago in Arousa.
