Sketch is a white wine from the very special Albariño variety. It is made by Raúl Pérez, currently the most important winemaker in the field of Spanish wine. Raúl Pérez is known to produce wonderful wines from the Mencia variety, several of them at the top of the lists of the best known critics.
Sketch is made from Albariño grape variety. The grapes come from old vines between 60 and 80 years old planted near the sea, in Meaño, which gives the wine a special saline character. Fermentation takes place in large barrels of 750 litres yet the wood does not hide the identity of the terroir. Sketch doesn´t undergo malolactic fermentation. It's aged for a 12 months in the same barrels.
Its low production of 1500 bottles makes this one of the most sought after white wines Spain. So, hurry. You may not have another chance to try it!
