Product Description
Details

Made in DO Rías Baixas, Leirana Albariño is the entry-level Spanish white wine of the prestigious Forjas del Salnés winery. The two names behind it are no less than Rodrigo Méndez and the one and only Raúl Pérez.

This varietal Albariño is made from a 4-hectare plot with granite and sandy soils planted with 40 to 60-year-old vines.

The grapes were hand-harvested at their optimal ripening state. Then 60% of the wine must was fermented in stainless steel tanks, and 40% was fermented in oak vats. Both were aged on lees for 6 months.

Finally, Leirana Albariño 2020 was bottled and aged for some weeks in the cellar prior to its commercial release.

Pair this white wine from Rías Baixas with shrimp and light dishes.

Appearance

The white wine Leirana Albariño is medium straw with some steely and golden tinges.

Nose

This young Albariño suggests aromas of citrus and passion fruit, with hints of aromatic herbs, balsam, aniseed, and an underlying salty and mineral remembrance

Palate

This wine from Forjas del Salnés is savoury and fresh. Flavours of peaches, apples, lime, fresh hay, with some mineral undertones. This Galician white wine has precision, focus, and a long, subtle finish.

Our personal opinion

From the heart of Galicia, Leirana Alabariño 2020 is an nicely crafted white wine that we simply love.
