Nanclares y Prieto have developed something of a cult following around the world. It’s not the sort of recognition they sought out initially but their commitment to vineyard health and the distinctiveness that they are able to coax out of each plot of Albarino has made their wines a sort of touch stone – a reminder that in the right hands and with the right care Albarino can be just as sensitive to changes in terroir as Chenin Blanc or Chardonnay. Their wines are all made with indigenous yeasts and no additives or manipulation other than minimal doses of sulphur, they are pure Salnes Albarino from a humble but very, very talented team.

A Grana is a single vineyard from the exposed Sanxenxo area of the Val do Salnes. The plot of 30 year old vines sits on an vein of Granodiorite rock that imparts an intense and quite unique mineral edge to the wine. 

Tasting note:
A Grana is an incredibly intense Albarino, savoury and complex with flavours of red apple skin and a slight phenolic grip before a searing acid line carries the wine straight back through the palate. It's something of a tightrope act to balance this much acid but A Grana manages it with grace - it's a fascinating thing to behold now but promises a long, long life ahead.

Saline and acid-driven, this is a rare age worthy Albariño.
Incredibly bright and pure.

This is a Dry, Medium bodied wine with High acidity and No tannin. It is Pronounced in it's intensity with Medium alcohol and a Medium+ finish.
