A charming Albariño from the cool Val do Salnés, nestled right up against the Atlantic coast. The Bico da Ran is overflowing with citrus, fennel and tropical fruit. Irresistibly refreshing on it’s own or perfect with seafood, vegetable dishes and creamy sauces.
Our good friend Eulogio Pomares, winemaker at Zárate and something of a magician with the Albariño grape, was asked by his colleagues at Fento to be the winemaker of a new venture. The vines are grown at the bottom the Rías Baixas appellation, on the banks of the river Minho, which forms a natural border between Spain and its neighbour Portugal. The wines from this area are a bit less acidic and produce a slightly rounder palate without losing any of the typical Rías Baixas freshness.
At Fento they farm as respectfully to nature as possible, they let vegetation grow underneath Pergola trained vines, a system that is traditional to the region. One of Eulogio’s great talents is to bring terroir into the bottle and this is seen in a brilliant background of minerality in all these very well priced wines.
