Review :

Pequeño Santos is the latest venture of Todd Bloomberg, after years of experience. It is a wine that is not as pretentious as its older siblings, yet it bears all the hallmarks of a 100% Albariño, whose great merit lies in its ability to offer a combination of fantastic quality and a very reasonable price, which is no easy task nowadays.

Under Todd's direction as wine-maker, the wines succeed in expressing the best of the region's characteristics. The wines conform totally to organic farming methods, which include the customary use of sheep manure and green vegetable matter fertilisers, in pellet form, and nettle purine (fermented nettle tea). Natural yeasts, emanating from the organic vineyards, are the only ones used in the production of these wines. The vines are worked in parcels, château-style, and the soil composition, which is based on sand, limestone and clay, endows the wines with an unusual complexity. A clear example of this singularity is the estate known as Pago de Xoan, where on occasions the vineyard is flooded by the estuary water, which contributes some saline and iodine notes, not normal traits found in Spanish white wines.

12,5%

This is a bit of a find. An albarinho for around the £5-£6 price mark. Fruity and fresh, this is an easy drinker on its own or with fish dishes.
