Xurxo Alba (pron. SURE-sho, the Gallego version of 'Jorge') makes Albariño by the seashore. There's not much more to say. It's what he was born to do. It's what he knows best. He is the personification of Albariño. His cellar is in Cambados, next to his parent's restaurant and Tienda de Ultramarinos, a small shop selling local artisanal foodstuffs. For generations, his family has been farming and making Albariño in the Salnés Valley of Rías Baixas. Still, it wasn't until Xurxo finished his oenological studies that they started bottling their wines in 2006. They own about 2.5 hectares but source fruit from about ten spread throughout the region, which he ensures his growers' farm as naturally as possible. In the cellar, spontaneous fermentations with native yeasts are the practice for all of his wines. Clean and fresh with lively floral and tropical notes and hints of citrus aromas balanced on the palate, accompanied by fresh fruit flavors and good acidity. The finish is incredibly long and refreshing.
