2022 Rías Baixas, Spain, 75cl

Quinta de Couselo Barbuntin

What a nose! Fresh fruit apple, lychee and pear aromas with subtle lemon, lime and bergamot are interwoven with intense flora notes of orange blossom, cut grass and aromatic herbs with a whiff of minerality dancing throughout. The palate is just as exciting as the nose suggestions: intense and refreshing. There’s a wonderful balance between the lively citrus fruit and the 3 months on lees producing creamy complexity with good acidity and a saline kick on the finish to ensure you know this is proper Albariño!

Recommended by Decanter as one of their top value Spanish and Portuguese wines for under £20, Rías Baixas ‘Barbuntin’ Quinta de Couselo is a wonderfully aromatic Albariño with a crushed oyster shell minerality and crisp acidity that screams out to be paired with seafood.

Behind the bottle: Quinta de Couselo

José Gonzalez and his brother Javier have worked hard to restore these ancient vineyards, which cover just over 6 hectares. Respecting Quinta de Couselo’s age-old traditional winemaking, winemaker José Manuel Martínez Juste produces seriously elegant and precise wines, which reflect the estate’s unique terroir. Built in 1163 by the monks of the Monasterio de Santa Maria de Oia, Quinta de Couselo is located in the southernmost part of the Rías Baixas DO in the O Rosal Valley, bordered to the south by the mouth of the Miño River and influenced by the Atlantic Ocean to the west. The fine stone pazo, or manor house, is watched over by a pair of parasol pines, which are featured on its elegant labels.

The special microclimate here is thus one of mild temperatures, abundant rainfall and sunshine hours required for excellent grape ripening. The vines are grown on sedimentary soils: granite and slate, and are deep and rich in organic matter to lend good acidity to the fruit and resulting wines. The varieties grown are Albariño, Caiño Blanco, Loureiro and Treixadura. All viticultural practices are chosen to be fully compatible with the protection and improvement of the natural environment (integrated production).

Harvesting typically takes place during the second half of September, when the grapes reach optimum ripeness. All carried out manually, in plastic boxes of 20 kilos capacity. The harvest of each of the different grape varieties is conducted separately. Once in the winery, the carefully selected grapes are 100% destemmed. The pneumatic press, set at low pressure, extracts the juice very gently. The juice is cooled and allowed to decant prior to temperature-controlled fermentation (16-17°C) in stainless steel tanks with indigenous yeasts. After ageing on the lees for several months, the wine is clarified, cold stabilized, sterile filtered and bottled.
