Raúl Pérez, Sketch Albariño, Galicia, Spain, 2018

55.00

Albariño Sketch is made by legendary wine maker Raúl Pérez (Decanter wrote an article in 2019, titled “Is this the world’s best winemaker?”) not in his native Bierzo but at the coast in Rías Baixas.

The harvest takes place later, at the end of September, a time when the grape has a higher sugar level. The extraction is done without any maceration and is fermented with its own yeasts and then transferred to very old 750-litre casks for a year. It is bottled without clarification or filtration.

“The vines are grown on granitic soils and trained on the typical pergolas of the region. The vineyard is just 150m from the sea, producing a distinctive, original Albariño, full of rhubarb and gooseberry fruit, and punchy freshness. Perez says that the key has been to pick later than usual and then ferment in barrel. He stresses: ‘this is the natural Albariño, not the one made with commercial yeast’, Decanter.com
