Pale straw in colour. The bouquet shows soft fruity notes mixed with apple, gingersnap, graham cracker, and salt. There’s just a little funk and some cooling eucalyptus on the finish. It’s complex and unique in its style.

Iria is from Galicia in northwest Spain, she trained as a pharmacist and spent time in London before returning home to become a winemaker, and it’s not just any old Albariño Iria makes... she wants to show you the real Albariño, one of the most unique grapes in the world. In a style you don’t often see. She names all of her wines after animals who have bad reps (and unfairly so). The Sacabeira here is a local salamander which has poisonous skin to ward off predators, but if you see it in your vineyard, you know it's healthy and free of chemicals and pollution. They’re in Iria’s vineyards. Iria sources from 3 special plots which all bring something unique to the blend - one vineyard by the sea, another by a eucalyptus forest, and a third on a valley floor. You can really taste the influence of the sea… it has a gentle salinity which is quite moreish and unbelievably delicious.
