Eulogio Pomares, winemaker at Zárate and something of a magician with the Albariño grape, was asked by his colleagues at Fento to be the winemaker of a new venture. The vines are grown at the south the Rías Baixas appellation, on the banks of the river Minho, which forms a natural border between Spain and its neighbour Portugal. The wines from this area are a bit less acidic and produce a slightly rounder palate without losing any of the typical Rías Baixas freshness. At Fento they farm as respectfully to nature as possible, they let vegetation grow underneath Pergola trained vines, a system that is traditional to the region. One of Eulogio’s great talents is to bring terroir into the bottle and this is seen in a brilliant background of minerality in all these very well priced wines.
