Red Wine Goliardo Loureiro 2017
Availability: In stock
It is made exclusively from Loureiro, a rare native variety which has been recovered and put back into wine production by Forjas del Salnés and other Galician wineries.
Hand-harvested at their optimal ripening state, the grapes were fully destemmed on arriving at the cellar. Alcoholic fermentation was carried out in stainless steel tanks, and then this red wine from Rías Baixas was transferred into 4th year French oak barrels.
After that, Goliardo Loureiro 2017 was aged for 12 months in the barrels. Finally, the wine was aged for some time in the bottle before being released onto the market.
This utterly Atlantic Crianza red wine will make an excellent pairing with meat rice dishes, cold cuts and cured cheeses.
Bear in mind that this wine opens tight. Decant at least 30 minutes before drinking.
The red wine Goliardo Loureiro is medium cherry with a violet rim.
This varietal Loureiro is simply captivating. Withered flowers, blackcurrants and bilberries, with a licorice note, some mineral and vegetal remembrances, and dim spicy and toasted aromas.
This wine from Forjas del Salnés has grip, focus and the kind of acidity one finds in northern wines. Linear, savoury and humming with energy, with slightly rugged tannins, a saline note and a long finish reminiscent of black fruit and balsam.
|Our personal opinion||
The wine Goliardo Loureiro 2017 proves that the red wines from Galicia are every bit as interesting as the white wines.
