Bodegas Albamar

The Alba family owns about 2.5 hectares but also sources from about 10 hectares spread throughout the region. Their winery and land is close to the Atlantic Ocean, near the mouth of the Umia River in the heart of Galicia's Rías Baixas.

Xurxo Alda, the bodegas' winemaker, wishes they owned more, but like their land, neighboring vineyards have been passed along from generation to generation. Working the land is a way of life. It's what people do with their free time. It's a lifestyle that money can't buy.

Xurxo farms and makes sure his farmers farm as naturally as possible, as much as the region permits. Being by the sea, the threat of fungal diseases like mildew and oidium is always present. In the cellar, spontaneous fermentation with native yeast is a common denominator between all of the wines. Whether he works the lees or uses oak is on a wine by wine basis, vintage by vintage.

    This Mencia is exceptional.

    The grapes come from extremely steep slopes rich in decayed granite. They are naturally farmed, naturally fermented, and the Fusco is bottled without filtration or fining, which is clear in the wine's opaqueness in the glass.

    Ribeira Sacra is in the center of Galicia, a cooler and particularly rainy place so Mencia can come across as stemmy, unripe, green peppery.

    Albamar's Fusco makes that hard to believe though, it's so deliciously supple and juicy!
