Wines like this Caiño from Spain’s wet, Atlantic north west, are the type of esoteric, yet undeniably delicious wine that inspired us to start Kompas Wine Club. Grown almost exclusively in Galicia and northern Portugal (where it is known as Borraçal) the Caiño grape is highly aromatic and acidic and, at least in this instance, so great that one wonders how it could not be world famous. Anónimas Viticultoras is a project founded by Cristina Yagüe Cuevas and Maria Falcón, with the aim of paying tribute to all the anonymous women whose input into the wine industry historically went unrecognized. Os Dunares (‘the dunes’) is from a tiny, 200-year-old vineyard featuring ungrafted, pergola-trained vines with tree-like trunks extending 5-6 feet above the ground before branching. The grapes are farmed organically in very shallow granitic sand on a bedrock of granite, in the coolest, wettest and most esteemed subzone of Rias Baixas, Salnés. The grapes are destemmed but not crushed, then fermented at cold temperatures for an infusion style fermentation that extracts less tannins and preserves the delicate, fresh aromas of the grape. Aged 5 months in Stainless Steel (50%) and used French Oak (50%). The fresh red and black berries, and black pepper flavors are a natural paired with grilled fowl, octopus or shellfish.
