Indigo Selections

We caught wind of a new project brewing in Rias-Baixas about a few years ago from our friend and colleague Ben Henshaw in the UK. Ben is the proprietor of Indigo Wines and has been creating his own line of custom cuvées from growers he represents from all around the world. For his project in Rias-Baixas, he teamed up with Eulogio Pomares, side hustling from his day job at Zárate, Jamie Goode, wine writer, wine scientist, and wine critic, and Daniel Primack, the importer, and distributor of Zalto wine glasses in the UK. Quite the dream team of talent! We agreed to buy what we could get even before tasting it. Six months later, over lunch in Madrid with José Maria Vicente, we were astounded at how satisfyingly complex and pleasurable this wine proved to be. We even helped secure José Maria an allocation!

Rather than make this project a one-off, the same team worked with Theresa Breuer to create Salz der Erde in 2021. Like Sal da Terra, Salz der Erde is a selection of fruit from two sites with differing terroirs. Each is fermented separately and combined to create something greater than its parts. We eagerly await what minerally precise project Ben, Jamie, and Daniel come up with next.
