The Albariño is primarily sourced from vineyards close to the sea in the Salnes district in the Denominacion de Origen Rias Baixas. Our belief is that Albariño from this area is capable of producing wines as complex and age-worthy as the wines that we were involved in making in Burgundy and California. To this end, we do employ techniques such as barrel fermentation, ageing on the lies, and occasionally, malolactic, but we strive to keep the minerality, freshness and elevated aromatic qualities of Albariño. Throughout our winemaking careers, we have always emphasized balance and finesse in our wines, and Granite Post is no exception.
Whilst Granite Post Albariño is our interpretation of a Galician classic, rosé is very much a new wine to the region. Drawing on our quarter of a century’s experience of rosé winemaking in France, it helps us to pioneer Rias Baixas rosé. Working with very different varieties – Caiño, Espadiero, and Mencia – we are discovering how to craft an expression of rosé that is unique to Rias Baixas and will in time become, we hope, a new Galician classic.
