Benito Santos Pago de Xoan Albarino Rias Baixas

Benito Santos Pago de Xoan Albarino Rias Baixas


 Xoan spends eighteen months on the lees before bottling. Production was 3400 bottles. The nose shows developed notes of yellow fruit, some minerals (gun powder), fennel, and aniseed with more complexity and subtlety than its siblings. The palate is medium-bodied with very polished acidity.

Viñedo de Xoan is the original Benito Santos vineyard, planted in 1930-1932. It’s half a hectare in size, and located right next to the bodega, in Vilanova de Arousa. The vineyard is 500 meters from the Atlantic Ocean, and there’s always a particularly briny character to this wine. The vines are ungrafted and pergola-trained (the traditional method in Galicia). Soils are granite-based, which is the most common soil type in the appellation.
