Eulogio Pomares Carralcoba Albarino Rias Baixas 2018 (750ML)
Notes From the Importer: "The heart and soul of this project is an old vine parcel of Albarino from Rebecca’s grandmother that was planted in the 1940’s called Carralcoba. The vineyard is planted on its own roots (Pie Franco), with any vines that need replacing propagated using an ancient system called Marcottage where a branch from a neighboring plant is buried under the ground and then cut when the buried branch begins forming its own roots (as with Bollinger’s rare Vieilles Vignes Francaises). As with the Zarate vineyards, this parcel is farmed naturally with a similar regimen of biodynamic and plant extract treatments as they use at the estate. To pay tribute to the past history of the area, the wine is fermented in an old, Chestnut cask of 12HL, and aged for around 9-10 months on the lees, with full malolactic fermentation. The resulting wine is textured and complex, with a vibrant core of mineral and acid that are hallmarks of Eulogio’s wines." –Polaner Selections
