Raul Perez Sketch
Sketch is a collaboration between Raúl Pérez and his long-time friend, Rodrigo Méndez, himself a renowned Galician winemaker. Here they focus on the terroir of Val do Salnés, in Rías Baixas, cradle of Galician’s iconic grape, Albariño. Sketch is the big brother of Atalier, with grapes, from older vines, harvested later in the season.
The 60 to 80-year-old vineyards are located in Meaño, a stone’s throw away from the Atlantic, giving the wine a unique salty imprint. Harvested in late September, with extended time on the vine, the grapes have more sugar content and more aromatic complexity. Fermentation takes place in 750-litre barrels where it then ages for 12 months on the lees (dead yeast) for added texture. The wine is bottled unfined and unfiltered.
The rich nose has aromas of ripe peach, nectarine, pear and melon, topped by hints of bay leaf and apple peel. Fresh and enveloping palate, with a unique salty character and vibrant acidity. Fruit, minerality and acid come together in perfect balance for a truly delicious wine, with super long finish.
Only 1500 bottles produced each year. A true rare Galician gem from two outstanding winemakers!
