Description

Nanclares y Prieto A Grana 2020

Nanclares y Prieto A Grana is a wonderfully bright organic white wine made from Albariño. Fresh lemons, grapefruit and peaches fill the nose. The fruity aromas follow through to the palate, where they are met by a clean mineral edge. Refreshing and delicious with a high acidity, lovely texture and a hint of creaminess on the finish. 

100% Albariño. The fruit comes from small winemaker Alberto's 2.2 hectares of vines planted with Albariño and divided into 12 plots. The vineyards are located in the Rias Baixas sub region of Val do Salnes. The vines have an average age between 30–100 years old.

Made with whole bunch grapes selected by hand in the vineyards. Minimal intervention winemaking. Fermentation with wild yeasts in stainless steel tanks and 2,000 L French oak tubs. The wine ages for 11 months on lees in chestnut barrels.

The 2020 A Graña has a more fruit-driven nose and a round palate, perhaps because it has retained some five grams of residual sugar and the wine has less acidity. It might have had some partial malolactic. 1,200 bottles were produced. It feels like a 2020 nose and a 2019 palate.
