Characteristics of Do Ferreiro Cepas Vellas

Do Ferreiro Cepas Vellas is a single-variety Albariño white wine produced by Gerardo Méndez in the D.O. Rías Baixas.

The Gerardo Méndez winery was founded in 1975 through a passion for the Albariño native variety, a passion that the winemaker himself expressed by creating the Rías Baixas denomination. They now cultivate a total of 5 hectares of vineyards that lie in the highest part of Rías Baixas. These are limited, artisan productions.

Do Ferreiro Cepas Vellas comes from very old vines, some of which are around 200 years old. The vines spread over less than one hectare of land, on sandy soils with a granitic rock bed. From these vines they only produce between 5,000 and 9,000 litres, depending on the vintage. 10% of the grapes are left on the vine so that they reach botrytis noble state, and the harvest is completely manual.

In the winery, the grapes are destemmed and then undergo cold film maceration. Then the Do Ferreiro Cepas Vellas grapes are pressed and the must ferments using the ‘pie de cuba’ method. Finally the wine rests on its own fine lees in stainless steel tanks for about 12 months.

Do Ferreiro Cepas Vellas is a very elegant white wine with surprising complexity and depth. A small production from one estate that is smaller then one hectare and only made in years when the grapes are in the best condition.

Tasting notes Do Ferreiro Cepas Vellas

Do Ferreiro Cepas Vellas 2018 is an aromatic white wine with intense fruity notes of apple, tropical fruit and citrus. It reveals floral and mineral notes with a saline background. On the palate it is lingering, dense and silky. The acidity makes the finish fresh, balanced and saline.
The 2017 vintage has been distinguished by the excellent health of the vineyard and the intense heat. Winter and spring were warmer than normal, accelerating the growth cycle 15 days and which was prolonged during summer, bringing forward the date of the harvest to the end of August. The growth cycle went smoothly, with good flowering and no notable pests. In summer, the drought worsened and in August they began to see symptoms of dehydration in the bunches. However, rains at the beginning of September restored the balance of the vineyard. The wines of this vintage are identified by having something more volume due to its warmth and great freshness. A vintage to enjoy young, or as it is the norm for great wines of the area, to save for a few years.
Sight Intense straw yellow colour with golden reflections. Clean and bright wine with glyceric tears. Nose Intense aromas that seduce us from the beginning. Initially, its intense notes of fruit are released with outstanding citrus aromas and hints of ripe tropical fruits. After swirling the glass, some delicate floral aromas surprise us and stay in the background, giving way to an elegant and intense minerality. A background reminiscent of saline touches rounds out this wine. Taste Great. very elegant and refined white wine from the Rias Baixas. Wine with a very good, wide and bulky attack. It shows a long, dense and silky mid palate, with the notes of fruit and floral aromas previously found in the nose and an intense minerality. Its intense balsamic aromas, together with its good acidity, provides this wine with a nice freshness and a great balance. Long and very persistent aftertaste with a surprising saline hint.  One of the greatest wines of Albariño, that will seduce us with its elegance, complexity and finesse. A pleasure.
