Back Up The Truck: Spanish Edition
2021 Nanclares Y Prieto Dandelion Albarino

Posted by Joe Salamone

Nanclares makes some of the most stunning examples of the Albarino grape that we know.

Their Dandelion Albarino has taken on a life of its own at Crush. 

Every year, the wine sells out within a month of arriving and we field requests for the next six months.

At as low as $26.95, the explanation is simple. The Dandelion is one of the best and most interesting white wines around for the money. 

We're very happy to have the opportunity to offer the 2021 Dandelion Albarino to a wider audience.

We feel very fortunate to have landed a good quantity of this wine in this vintage. It may very well be the best example of the wine that we've tasted. 

The 2021 has a beautiful amount of verve and clarity. It's a perfect vintage to showcase the wine's chalky and saline minerality. The wine flaunts a nicely expressive complexity with herbs, stone fruits, and gentle spices. We really love the wine's focus and refinement. 

Nanclares Y Prieto began when Alberto Nanclares, an economist, purchased a home in Rías Baixas that included vines. Soon enough he was making wine following organic methods and later was joined by Silvia Prieto, a lab technician. The results are some of the most breathtaking white wines in Spain. 

We're very happy to be able to offer this. This is one of the great values in white wine.
