Red Wine Goliardo Espadeiro 2018
Availability: In stock
Made solely from Espadeiro, a high-quality variety indigenous to Galicia and Portugal, the grapes are sourced from vines 45 to 180 (!) years old, grown in sandy, granite and cobblestone soils.
Hand-harvested and meticulously selected, the grapes were fully destemmed before being fermented in stainless steel tanks. Malolactic fermentation was carried out in French oak barrels, where Goliardo Espadeiro 2018 was then aged for 12 months. Finally, this red wine from Rías Baixas was aged for some months in the bottle before hitting the market.
This is a truly hard-to-find Crianza red wine. Only 600 bottles produced!
Aerate 1 hour before drinking.
The red wine Goliardo Espadeiro is medium cherry with a purplish rim.
This varietal Espadeiro is very original. Amarena cherries and redcurrants, with hints of sandalwood, withered flowers, chinese ink and smoke, and some mineral and forest floor remembrances.
This wine from bodega Forjas del Salnés is linear, crisp and focused. It has an impressive acidity and a great freshness, all of which, together with a saline and mineral core, results in a markedly Atlantic character. Long finish, with vegetal remembrance and a smokey and balsamic aftertaste.
