"Fento Wines are made with organically farmed grapes from micro vineyards spotted throughout the Condado de Tea subzone of Rías Baixas. Prestigious winemaker Eulogio Pomares of Bodegas Zarate and his wife Rebeca Montero were both raised with vineyards for playgrounds and have spent their entire lives immersed in the industry of viticulture and winemaking. Their personal joint venture was created in August of 2012 and is a young, family business that makes wines that reflect the strength of the grapes and their nuances, but comes with a fresh focus and presentation, a personal enterprise that combines natural viticulture with new techniques. 100% Albariño, planted in 1980 to granite ‘Xabra’ soils in the Castrelo district of the Val do Salnés sub-zone of Rias Baixas. The three hectare plot sits 25 meters above sea level alongside the Atlantic coast. Vines are trained on classic pergola trellising to avoid mildew. Hand-harvested in mid-September. Bunches are de-stemmed, and briefly soak on skins before natural yeast fermentation in Slovenian oak foudres. Aged on lees for 18 months prior to bottling." -Supplier notes
