"Nacho Gonzalez refers to the manifestations of his La Perdida project as “Island Wines”, despite the fact that his vineyards are located in one of the most land-locked parts of Galicia, N Spain. Amidst a homogenous landscape of industrial wineries that exploit the flat topography of the region, Nacho tenaciously stewards the legacy of his family through the vineyards his grandmother beckoned him to tend. Six vineyards and a total of four hectares...Each vineyard dates back to Franco-era agricultural mandates, and is planted in the old way: a mutualistic quiltwork of red and white grapes that flatter each other in the fermenter just as much as they nurture one another in the field...Chemicals are never used, in the vineyard nor in the winery. Every wine is raised in tinaja, clay vessels sourced from artisan-hero of the amphora world Juan Padilla." - Psychic Wines


"The Garnacha Tintorera & Mencía vines yield less than 1kg of fruit per plant. The grapes were hand-harvested and destemmed, wild yeast fermented in 400L tinajas and old 225L & 500L French barrels, then raised for 6 months before bottling without fining, filtration or added SO2, and held a further 6 months in bottle before release. This is an intensely complex vino tinto Gallego with a wild and rustic personality, ideal to pair with fatty meats and wild game." - Henry's BK
