Castro Martin Goes Raw Wine of the Week
Castro Martin Albarino, one of our favourite Albarino producers has had new life breathed into it! The story goes Scott Wasley, pioneer Australian Spanish wine importer has been tasting this wine unfiltered from tank for over a decade. He’s always loved a textural element noticeable in tank which seemingly vanishes upon bottling. The only explanation is the light filtration the wine undergoes prior to being bottled. The solution? Bottle it as it is in tank!
This wine has all the fresh aromatics of apple, lime, lemon and nashi pear you expect from a benchmark Albarino. But the change in the texture is transformative! The extra weight and slight phenolic grip offsets the acidity perfectly and adds an extra dimension to the fruit and importantly, the experience of the wine. This is pure hedonism – a fresh and unctuous wine perfect for the warming weather, delicious on its own and brilliant with a classic paring of seafood or cured meats and delicious Spanish nibbles.
This wine is exclusive to Australia and we are extending it to all customers and this delicious little unfiltered number will sell quick!
