WSI93+ A classic, acid driven rendition of Albariño from Mar de Envero. Vinified and aged in steel – the tension in this wine reminds us of Riesling – but with a vinous nod to both the sand and sea. A light, crisp and delicate rendition of Albariño from Mar de Envero, with a vinous nod to both the sand and sea.
Ah! Albariño! Aromatic, crisp, reminiscent of a cross between Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier, and in cases where there is lees aging it has weight and mouthfeel of Sémillon without any of the sweetness. And always a characteristic faint bitterness that blends so well wit its saline personality.
Mar de Envero is a winery that, since its foundation in 2007, produces unique Galician wines with typicality and personality. After leading singular projects in different appellations of origin, its winemaker Manyo Moreira returns to Galicia, a land where he finds by soil, climate and grape varieties the character and elegance he needs for his wines.
Envero means veraison. In his off time, Miguel (he goes by Manyo) surfs the cold waters off the Galician coast. So he has waves on his mind. One day while looking out over the rolling green vineyards during the time of Veraison, he was reminded of the ocean and sets of waves coming in. Thus, Mar de Envero. Sea of Veraision.
They currently farm 6.5 HA of vineyards and produce 2 wines. The Mar de Envero is the wine that Miguel started the winery in order to make. It is 100% Albariño with a little skin contact and extended lees aging. The Troupe is a classic version of Albariño. Both are very pure and acid driven wines that speak of the ocean.
