A Cruz das Ánimas’ (The Crossroads of Souls ) leaps out of the glass with aromas of oyster shell and granite and follows through with a palate rich in marine-inflected yellow and green fruits and sporting a powerful surge of acidity.

Many believe that the Albarino grape was first brought to Spain by the French monks in the 11th and 12th centuries via the Camino de Santiago. Whether that is completely accurate or not, we do know that the grapes ancestral home in Spain is the Val do Salnés. A coastal region with sandy soils that were able to survive the phylloxera crisis of the late 19th century, thus making them some of the oldest un-grafted vitis vinifera plantings in the world. Atalier Albariño comes from a trio of such vineyards, all within a kilometer of the coast in the village of Dena.
