José Manuel Martínez’s brilliant 2018 Quinta de Couselo O Rosal is an absolutely electric white wine. It’s old-school Spanish white wine, located just north of Portugal in the O Rosal district of Rias Baixas. It’s a coastal wine, sourced from ancient Albarino vines that are precariously set in hillsides of sheer slate. Jose has never used chemicals in his vineyards and does everything by hand. This is vibrant, saline Albariño with a stony minerality that makes it both fantastic with anything from the sea but also just as good to start any meal as a mouth-watering apertif. This wine will sing to you, don’t miss it.

Sitting on the Miño river which separates Spain and Portugal, Couselo’s soils contain slate which is extremely rare for the sub-zone.
Pair with Barnegat sea scallops, grilled shrimp, any flaky white fish or just by itself as the perfect aperitif.
