90 points Vinous
The 2022 Albariño Legado del Fraile, originating from Rías Baixas, underwent a brief lees-aging in tank. It exhibits a green hue and reveals tropical and herbal notes atop a layer of green apple. With a dry and refreshing profile. This white wine is taut and savory, leaving a rich, enduring finish.

Grapes are pressed and macerated with the skins at cold temperatures for several hours to add aromatics and incorporate the native yeasts. The wine is then seperated from the skins and allowed to warm to begin fermentation. About half way through fermentation the wine is racked off the gross lees and allowed to continue. The gross lees are maintained and used as nutrient additions to help fermentation along. The wine ages on the fine lees for a few weeks with occassional stirring. The wine is bottled filtered and stabalized. Malo sometimes happens but is not controled.
