Product description

Since 2012, Fento Wines has focused on the grape types and winegrowing regions of Galicia and northern Portugal. Eulogio Pomares, a well-known winemaker from Zarate, has contributed his albario experience to the project. The Condado de Tea's granite and slate-based vineyards follow the Tea River, a tributary of the Mio. The citrus and tropical fruit aromas of Fento's 'La Liebre y La Tortuga' (the hare and the turtle) reflect the warmer, slightly inland environment of the Ras Baixas region. This albario is hand-harvested and fermented in stainless steel tanks, with a focus on freshness and fruit. On the tongue, it develops passionfruit and other tropical fruit notes, with a hint of texture to round off a refreshing sip, starting with bright grapefruit on the scent. Sustainably grown. Vegan.

88 Points - Anthony Gismondi     One of winemaker Eulogio Pomares' many projects (most notably, Zarate), this youthful albariño has the energy of the rabbit (libère), as well as the grape's tortoise-like ageability (the tortuga). Sourced from the mountainous sub-region of Condado, alongside the river Miño, and from 10-15 year old vines on granite and slate soils, this was vinified and aged for a short time in stainless. Spritely and a bit spritzy, this is a fresh, bright white, shining with gooseberry, guava, pear skin, and grapefruit, with a dusting of white pepper and a subtle granitic grip on the lighter palate, finishing with a pithy lime twist. Drinking well now, with lighter white fish or salads.
