Bodegas Castro Martin Family Estate Selection Albariño 'Sobre Lias' 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

The delightful Angela Martin and her husband Andrew McCarthy run the Castro Martin estate, in Rias Baixas, on Spain's Galician coast. A one grape winery, this Bodega is all about Albarino and Castro Martin has led the way in the grape's recent revival. Angela was one of the first winemakers to recognise the benefits of cool, temperature controlled fermentations to protect Albarino's delicate, aromatic fruit. The Castro Martin Family Estate Albariño is mineral and fine. It has a distinct salty minerality on the nose, with a whiff of seaside air, leading to pure, clean, limpid white fruit aromas.The palate almost shimmers with tang and vibrancy, and though it has a steely precision, there is an abundance of fruit too that has a peachy, pear-like quality backed up by a vivid streak of lemon and mineral acidity. Albarino was made to go with seafood and fish - mussels, crab, oysters, langoustine and lobster - make a perfect companion.
