Dandelión, Alberto Nanclares (75cl)


Racy and zesty, this is not a wine for those afraid of a little acidity. A wonderful example of Albariño.

Grapes: Albariño

Region: Rias Baixas, Galicia, Spain

Alcohol: 12.9%

Tasting notes/pairing options: This is not a wine for those afraid of a little acidity. It's pure, racy, and zesty, with pure citrus fruit and pronounced minerality. On the palate the wine is fleshed out by a slight yeasty edge, giving it lovely balance.

Organic, suitable for vegans and vegetarians

The viticulture/the winemaking:

Vineyards are fully organic and he uses some biodynamic methods. The team use seaweed from the nearby ocean for compost and does not plow in order to keep the surrounding flora and fauna in their natural habitat. The grapes were not destemmed before going into a pneumatic press for low-pressure pressing, followed by static settling for 36 hours. This wine is fermented with wild yeasts by parcel. Bottled with modest levels of SO2 and without clarification or filtration.

We are a close family business and are currently in our second generation. We are based on our natural lavender farm, Yorkshire Lavender in the North Yorkshire countryside.

So why wine?

With a member of our staff, Timi, a trained sommelier; it seemed crazy to let that enthusiasm and experience go to waste.

Wine starts in the ground! Just like lavender the correct soil, conditions and care are vital to grow excellent grapes to make exceptional wine.

Our commitment to our natural lavender farm along with Timi’s enthusiastic expertise has led to a developing interest in natural, organic, bio-dynamic wines.
