Overview

For close to a decade, Mariano Garcia has contemplated making a white wine at Aalto and initiated the planting of Verdejo in 2013 at a site with limestone-rich soils located close to Aalto’s cellars. The 2019 vintage is pure Verdejo from this site, but with successive releases, there are plans to incorporate Albillo and Godello into the final blend. Like the other wines at this estate, the Blanco de Parcela is a rich and opulent wine at first blush but one of startling freshness and moderate alcohol achieved by harvesting just as the grapes reach physiological ripeness.
