Characteristics of Pequeño Santos

Pequeño Santos is a white wine from Rias Baixas, produced by the Benito Santos winery.

This winery is located in the town of Vilanova de Arousa (Pontevedra), in the northwest corner of Spain.

Pequeño Santos is a varietal Albariño. Its grapes come from three farms owned by the winery: the estate of Vilanova, that of Saiar and Xoan, the grapes are from ancient pre-phylloxera vines. In addition, all the vineyards are grown organically.

For the preparation of this white wine, the grapes undergo a spontaneous fermentation separately. After the wine is made, the final blend is produced.

It is remarkable, that the Benito Santos winery uses organic farming certified by the Regulatory Council of Agriculture of Galicia.

Tasting notes Pequeño Santos

The 2017 vintage has been distinguished by the excellent health of the vineyard and the intense heat. Winter and spring were warmer than normal, accelerating the growth cycle 15 days and which was prolonged during summer, bringing forward the date of the harvest to the end of August. The growth cycle went smoothly, with good flowering and no notable pests. In summer, the drought worsened and in August they began to see symptoms of dehydration in the bunches. However, rains at the beginning of September restored the balance of the vineyard. The wines of this vintage are identified by having something more volume due to its warmth and great freshness. A vintage to enjoy young, or as it is the norm for great wines of the area, to save for a few years.
Sight Straw yellow, steely, with golden highlights. Nose Clean and medium-high intensity. Aromas of ripe fruit (apple), some citrus and floral and herbaceous notes. Complex and structured. Taste Creamy and fresh, creamy and silky texture. Very good acidity, balanced and expressive. Long and persistent.
Sight Straw yellow colour, steely, with greenish reflections. Very clean and very bright. Nose Clean nose with a great intensity in which we can appreciate fruity aromas; fresh and crunchy white and yellow fruit with pit, citric notes, and some tropical reminiscences. Little by little, floral notes appear together with slight mineral, herbaceous, saline touches. Seductive and complex. Taste In the mouth, it is a fresh and unctuous white wine, with a mid-palate marked by appetising fruit, more citric tan in the nose, medium-bodied and with a silky texture. Excellent acidity, which incites the next sip, provides definition and depth. Fruity and mineral aftertaste. Absolutely recommendable. Magnificent value (and pleasure) for money.

Taste In the mouth this white wine is unctuous and fresh, with a palate dominated by appetising fruit, more citric than in the nose. Medium-bodied, silky texture. Excellent acidity, encouraging another sip and bringing definition and depth. Fruity and mineral aftertaste. 100% recommendable. Fantastic value for money, and enjoyment!

Designation of Origin D.O. Rías Baixas

Rías Baixas wines would not be where they are today without the native Albariño grape variety. Although red wines are also produced in Rías Baixas, practically 100% of Rías Baixas wines are white. Among them, the vast majority of them are made with the Albariño grape. As well as young wines, fresh and aromatic, the region also makes wines aged in the barrels, complex wines with great personalities. Albariño wines can either be single varieties, or be part of a blend with other characteristic grapes of the region: Treixadura, Loureira Blanca and Godello.
