White Table Wine
Tras los Muros, literally “behind the walls,” refers to the vines closest to the winery. This wine is the work of Berta García, a family member and winemaker who has worked at acclaimed estates such as Maison Louis-Latour (in Burgundy) and Chateau Haut Brion (in Bordeaux). It sees second-use, French oak barrels where the wine ages for 6 months before it sees another 6 months in stainless steel and then a further 15 months resting in bottle before it is finally released.
With less than 3,000 bottles produced annually, this is truly one of a kind. Rich and intensely concentrated, this powerful and dynamic wine is one for the cellar, to be savoured at a future celebration. We are fortunate enough to have secured this gorgeous, collectable Albariño in single bottle allocations that come in a beautiful collector’s wooden case.
“The 2018 Tras los Muros matured in barrel for six months, and it’s the new oak-aged young Albariño signed by Marisol Bueno’s daughter Berta García. It has some developed notes of tropical fruit and some creamy oak and spiciness. The palate is quite sharp and also reveals some oak-related flavors. I think it needs time in the bottle. 2,790 bottles produced.”

“Aged for six months in barrels. Similar nose to Graves or Napa Fumé Blanc – that almost uneasy combination of aromatic fruit plus sweet oak. Shot through with herbal pith on the palate, with very Atlantic acidity that veers towards the austere. Less oaky on the palate than the nose. I’m not sure this is my favourite expression of Albariño, but it is certainly well made.”
