Pedro Méndez Sen Etiqueta Albariño
His entry-level Albariño doesn’t list the grape on the label and is aptly called Sen Etiqueta (without label). Its grapes are harvested from his family’s other vineyards scattered throughout Rías Baixas, mainly in Meaño, a three or four mile flight from the Atlantic. It’s snappy, minerally, pure and a fabulous deal for the quality.
Pedro Méndez’s wines are characterized by their freshness and Atlantic character, resulting in lively, elegant and long-drinking wines, with minimal intervention in the winery and maximum respect for the vineyard, thus expressing the varieties to their full potential, reminiscent of the wines of yesteryear in the Salnés Valley.
