|From one of the very best bodegas in Rías Baixas|
|Cool climate wine par excellence, complex and refined|
|Wonderful with shellfish, grilled fish and as an aperitif|
The pure, authentic Albariño of Galician Rodrigo Méndez stands out to a great extent from the wide range of cold-fermented, more one-dimensional, standardized white wines from other producers.
Rodrigo started his Bodega Forjas del Salnés in 2005, with the now legendary Raúl Pérez as cellar master. The domain is located in the village of Meaño, less than three kilometers from the Atlantic Ocean. Rodrigo wanted to return to a natural, original way of winemaking.
He therefore processes his vineyards organically, harvests manually and intervenes as little as possible in the cellar. The fermentation takes place spontaneously, using natural, wild yeasts. The lactic acid fermentation is not carried out here – unlike most Albariños – so that the typical freshness of the Atlantic Salnés valley is preserved. After fermentation, the wine stays for seven months in stainless steel tanks and in old, large oak barrels (20%).
It is hard to imagine that the harsh Atlantic climate, which is so difficult for winegrowers, and the hard, poor granite soil here can produce such fantastic wines. The Leirana is a great Spanish white wine with special refinement. Feel free to let it mature for 4 to 5 years and thus gain in complexity.
