Adega Eidos Padrinan Albarino 2016Adega Eidos Padrinan Albarino 2016
Adega Eidos Padrinan Albarino 2016. Founded in 2000 by local growers, Adega Eidos produces Albariño from grapes grown exclusively in and among the gardens of Sanxenxo in the parish of Padriñán, located at the southern extreme of Rías Baixas’ Val do Salnes subdistrict. The ‘Eidos’ (garden arbors) in Sanxenxo – 100 acres of which Adega Eidos owns – are traditionally trained, are almost always ungrafted, and are over 50 years of age.
Since 2003, winemaking has taken place in a winemaking facility of efficient and modern design overlooking Sanxenxo harbos. Selected bunches are brought the short distance in small crates, and are then sorted before the de-stemming, crushing and cold maceration processes. Natural yeasts undergo temperature control to achieve long fermentations and natural clarification, and the wines are left on their fine lees until bottling. Eidos de Padriñán is considered to be the primary wine of the larger estate, as it offers ripe and extracted Albariño fruit with clear mineral notes from the sea breeze and granitic soil.

Keller Limestone Riesling 2016Keller Limestone Riesling 2016
Sourced from the younger plots of the prized ‘First Growth’ Abtserde & Kirschspiel. Keller ist Keller. Amazing producer. Beautiful talc perfume, and maybe something like guava, ripe lime, rocks and candles, and, well, just other delightful Riesling stuff. Intense lime and green apple, chalky and slaty, good punch of crystalline acidity tussling with juicy sweetness, and an uplifting finish of perfume, precision and lip-smacking satisfaction. This is how you do a pow pow powerful off-dry Riesling.
