Characteristics of Bastión de la Luna

Bastión de la Luna is a red wine from the Rías Baixas produced by the Forjas del Salnés cellar. This is a blend of Mencia with native varieties Caíño, Espadeiro and Loureiro.

The grapes used for Bastión de la Luna comes from old vines.

The harvest is done manually and traditional winemaking is still used, with little interventionist methods, allowing the vineyard to do the talking.

Bastión de la Luna is aged for about 12 months in old French oak barrels.

Bastión de la Luna is a red wine from lands where whites are generally produced. The vines, which grow by the sea, are known for their strong Atlantic character.

Raúl Pérez's collaboration with the winery was used to develop a fresh and very expressive red wine. Forjas del Salnés was primarily a company that built floats for the mussel rafts in the Rias Baixas, but since 2003 has become a charming little family winery.

Tasting notes Bastión de la Luna

Sight Cherry red with garnet rim. Nose Complex and delicate nose. Aromas of ripe fruits with spicy notes and hints of oak. Taste Fresh and tasty, it is balanced. Memories of minerals and toasted notes. Powerful, long and persistent finish.
Sight

A deep cherry red colour with garnet rim.

Nose

Complex and delicate nose. Red fruits, spices, tea leaves, laurel, mineral notes.

Taste

The taste is fresh, tasty and balanced. There are wonderful memories of minerals. Long finish.

Sight Intense red cherry colour with maroon hints. Clean and bright wine with a medium-high robe and thin tears. Nose Elegant, very attractive aromas with a medium intensity. The wild fruit aromas are released from the very beginning and little by little become more expressive and turn into notes of tasty ripe fruit. Its fragrant floral notes are slowly released along with light toasted aromas and a good milky background. Some subtle and fresh balsamic notes of undergrowth are also felt in the background. Taste A Galician red wine characterised by its freshness and its salinity. A nice wine, with character, with a fresh attack that leads to a smooth mid palate. A very pleasant medium-bodied wine in which the fruit is perfectly balanced with some pleasant toasted notes and a good minerality. A wine with a marked but very balanced acidity and strong but well integrated tannins. Its extremely long finish has a great persistence.  A wine that surprises us and does not leave anybody indifferent.

D.O. Rías Baixas

Winery Forjas del Salnés

The Albariño grape is a spanish white variety with a strong floral and terpene character, ideal for producing not only young fresh and aromatic whites, but also (barrel) aged wines. Initially the DO. Rías Baixes was only seen as a region of great hope for Spanish whites, but it has managed to turn this hope into reality.
