Product Description
Details

In the town of Meaño, that is, at the very heart of Albariño land, belonging to the DO Rías Baixas, the respected winemaker Gerardo Méndez produces this Spanish white wine.

A varietal AlbariñoDo Ferreiro is made from vines 10 to 50 years of age.

The vineyards of this white wine from Rías Baixas are planted in soils composed of granite and sand. They have good drainage, a key feature in an area which receives abundant rainfall.

Harvested by hand, the grape bunches were destemmed, cold-macerated for 24 hours and fermented for 24 days in stainless steel tanks. After that, Do Ferreiro 2020 from Bodegas Gerardo Méndez was aged on its lees for 7 months.

Pair this white wine from Galicia with rice dishes and creamy cheese.

This producer nails it every time. I've drank his red wine Bastion de Luna, a real treat, this Ribeiro ferreiro is also excellent. It is easy to drink, very fresh, with mineral aromas and, all in all, very pleasant.
