A red wine from 'Green Spain'? The sour cherry, cracked black pepper and herbal notes of this Caiño Tinto reflect its fresh Atlantic origins. Grapes come from a single vineyard on the coast, close to the mouth of the Umia River. The vines are 70 years old and are trained on tall granite posted pergolas, called emparrados in Gallego, which keep them off the damp ground. To farm here organically is a labour of love - they use shells from the surrounding coastline which provide the calcium and magnesium the vines don’t get from the granite soils, and seaweed as compost. This is an elegant distinctive wine, one to try if you enjoy Loire Cabernet Franc.
