Characteristics of Finca Genoveva Caíño
Finca Genoveva Caíño is a red wine from the D.O Rías Baixes produced by the Forjas del Salnés winery. This is a single variety wine made with the Caíño Tinto grape.
Made by Rodrigo Méndez in collaboration with laureate Raúl Pérez, Finca Genoveva Caíño is a wine that you must try at least once in your life. The grapes used to produce this wine come from small scale plots of vineyards, home to century old Caíño vines, occupying little over 1.5 hectares. The vines themselves have been worked and cultivated for 5 generations, one of which, the Genovevas, giving the name to the estate and the wine.
Finca Genoveva Caíño is vinified using traditional methods, in fudres with native yeasts. Before being bottled, the wine is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels.
Forjas del Salnés is a small family winery in the Rías Baixes founded at the beginning of the last century. The winery produces distinctive wines using native grape varieties. The project, currently led by Rodrigo Mendez, has the invaluable collaboration of Raúl Perez, perhaps the most critically acclaimed Spanish winemaker.
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.
Forjas do Salnés is one of those wineries from Galicia with a rebellious and ground-breaking spirit, that seriously opted to make high-quality red wines in an area with a prevailing production of whites. The recovery of century-old vineyards of hardly known red varieties, such as Caíño, Espadeiro and Loureiro, in addition to the white Albariño from the old vineyard, are the base of their wines and a clear reflection of the terroir: wines full of freshness, with a perfect minerality, ample sensations and with a surprising evolution.
