White Wine Leirana Albariño 2019
Availability: In stock
This varietal Albariño is made from a 4-hectare plot of 40 to 60-year-old vines, grown in soils composed of sand and granite.
Harvested by hand at their optimal ripening state, the wine must was fermented in stainless steel tanks under a strict temperature control.
Then this white wine from Rías Baixas was aged on its lees for a short period of time.
Finally, Leirana Albariño 2019 spent some further weeks in the cellar prior to its commercial release.
The white wine Leirana Albariño has a very clean, bright, straw yellow colour with some steely and golden tinges.
This young Albariño from Rías Baixas is defined by aromas of white fruit, citrus and passion fruit, combined with suggestions of aromatic herbs, balsam, aniseed, and an underlying salty and mineral remembrance.
This varietal young Albariño from Forjas del Salnés is savoury and fresh. Notes of peaches, apples, lime, fresh hay, with some mineral undertones. This Galician white wine has precision, focus, and a long, subtle finish.
