Albariño ‘Barbuntin’ Rías Baixas, Quinta de Couselo, Galicia 2022

Recommended by Decanter as one of their top value Spanish and Portuguese wines, a wonderfully aromatic, minerality and crisp acidity perfect with seafood.

£18.25

Tasting Notes - Wonderfully aromatic Albariño with a pronounced minerality and hint of salinity owing to the region's proximity to the Atlantic ocean. Green apple aromas and citrus flavours give this wine a crisp acidity that pairs perfectly with seafood. Though pale in colour it is a wine of great presence and considerable density and precision.

Blend - Albariño 100%

Producer - José Gonzalez and his brother Javier have worked hard to restore these ancient vineyards, which cover just over 6 hectares. Respecting Quinta de Couselo’s age-old traditional winemaking, winemaker José Manuel Martínez Juste produces seriously elegant and precise wines, which reflect the estate’s unique terroir. Built in 1163 by the monks of the Monasterio de Santa Maria de Oia, Quinta de Couselo is located in the southernmost part of the Rías Baixas DO in the O Rosal Valley, bordered to the south by the mouth of the Miño River and influenced by the Atlantic Ocean to the west. The vines are grown on sedimentary soils: granite and slate, and are deep and rich in organic matter to lend good acidity to the fruit and resulting wines. The varieties grown are Albariño, Caiño Blanco, Loureiro and Treixadura.​

Alcohol percentage – 12.5%
