Regular price $17.99
/

Benito Santos is one of the most important figures in the history of Albarino and the Rias Baixas D.O. He began working in his grandfather’s vineyards in the 1930’s, making wine to serve at his bar. And his wines consistently won prizes in the annual Fiesta de Albariño in Cambados. Towards the end of his life in the 1980’s, he was essential in the creation of the Rias Baixas D.O. in Northwestern Spain. 

Possessing notes found in wines like Sancerre, Chablis, Muscadet and Dry Riesling, this is the way Albarino is supposed to taste. Salty, mineralic, lively and concentrated with layers of Meyer lemon, pear, quinine, peach skin, and wet rock. Crushable and satisfying, this wine will elevate fresh seafood dishes to new heights.
