Albariño
Litrona is our ode to the liter format which we heavily consumed during our college years in Spain, except back then it was liters of beer. Like many of the wines we import, Litrona is focused on drinkability which is why 750ml just wasn’t gonna cut it. Thoughtful farming and minimal intervention winemaking remain the pillars of the brand where native grape varieties from each region are the main protagonist.
Those of you that have any of Xurxo's delicious Galician wines know how exceptional he is. This format is a lot of fun, while still being serious zero-zero winemaking. Organically farmed Albariño, hand harvested, whole cluster press into old neutral 2500L foudre where it undergoes full malolactic fermentation and ages for about 1 year before bottling unfiltered, unfined, and unsulphured.

You might first think this would be a full-bodied white, but not at all - the aging balances the acidity perfectly and makes a thirst-quenching yet elegant day-drinker. We can't put it down. Organic
