Bodegas Eidosela Charquiño Albariño
Region: Condado de Tea, Spain
From the Condado de Tea sub-region in Rias Biaxas, where the granitic based soil structure severely restricts yielding potential – as little as 6 tonnes/ha, where other parts of Rías Baixas can yield up to 15 t/ha.
This produces fruit of exceptional concentration, with early ripening grapes coming off the vines before rains, and/or high sugars can ruin the crop. There is a very nice balance in the wine between subtly flavoured fruits and, and light softly spiced green vegetal elements.
Super smooth style here, with fresh, mouth-watering acidity, and a pitch perfect tannin profile, which can often be so difficult to achieve with the Albarino grape.
