Details
The Do Ferreiro Albarino is sourced from a variety of vineyards Gerardo Mendez owns and farms throughout the Salnes valley. This valley's proximity to the ocean and protection by mountain ranges has gained it the reputation for being the best area in Rias Baixas for viticulture. The wine was fermented in 100% stainless steel and 100% destemmed. All natural yeasts are used. Complex aromas of salinity,exotic fruits with wet earth/herbal tones. The palate is textured with excellent acidity.

"It has a fresh and balanced nose, with notes of good freshness —quite striking for a warmish year —with citrus notes intermixed with hints of white flowers and fruit. It's a more powerful year, with 13.5% alcohol, but has great acidity and freshness. The palate is focused and delineated, with great purity and very tasty flavors. It has great mid-palate and concentration. A surprise. It's one of the finest young Do Ferreiros I remember. This should evolve nicely in bottle." Luis Gutierrez Wine Advocate 92 points
