Cracka Review

Now here’s something a little different - a spirit made from the albarino grape. Aguardiente means 'strong water' in Spanish, and this one shows appealing herb and floral aromas on the nose, along with a hint of citrus. The palate is light and smooth, with a touch of residual sugar softening things out, some nice stone fruits and herbs in the flavours, and a bit of sweetness on the finish. Great as an after dinner drink over ice.

Winemaker's Notes

Marc de Galicia or Aguardiente is the spirit produced by distilling the fermented marc of Galician-grown grapes, effectively making it a by-product of the local wine industry. The spirit has been produced in Galica for generations and its use as a beverage and as a 'medicinal' remedy is fully integrated into local culture.

Bodegas Castro Martín, makers of the eponymous Albariño, has been producing Aguardiente since 1982 and as true Galicians, have maintained a limited production ever since.

Blanca is a pure grape marc spirit with spritely Albariño fruit characters and a touch Atlantic saltiness. As a digestive, it can be served neat or in a well-chilled glass.
