Characteristics of Goliardo A Telleira
Goliardo a Telleira is a white wine that is produced by the winery Forjas del Salnés in the appellation of origin Rías Baixas.
Forjas del Salnés is a small family business who have been working in collaboration with the great winemaker Raúl Pérez, one of the most influential characters on the Spanish wine scene known for his work with varietal Mencía in the Bierzo and his multiple collaborations with a wide range of wineries in Spain and throughout the world.
Goliardo a Telleira is a wine brother to the famous Sketch, which carries the stamp of the great Raúl pérez.
The two wines share the same grapes, the same production but are separated at the end for commercial purposes. Goliardo a Telleira is sold under Forja del Salnés, whilst Sketch is sold under the Raúl Pérez.
For the production, Goliardo a Telleira is produced from the varietal Albariño. Grapes that originate from one single plot of land and the vines are aged between 60-80 years old which are planted next to the sea, a location that it is reflected in the saltiness of the wines from this winery.
Goliardo a Telleira is alcoholically fermented in large used barrels of 750 litres. The intention is that the barrels interfere the least possible amount for a pure personality of the wine.
The wine does not receive the malolactic fermentation process. Once finished, Goliardo a Telleira is bottled and submerged in the sea at a depth of 30 meters in special cages where the wine is aged for 3 months.
This is a great Albariño with an intriguing ageing method. If you would like to try this wine, please do so, but be quick! Only 900 of these were produced.

Rías Baixas wines would not be where they are today without the native Albariño grape variety. Although red wines are also produced in Rías Baixas, practically 100% of Rías Baixas wines are white. Among them, the vast majority of them are made with the Albariño grape. As well as young wines, fresh and aromatic, the region also makes wines aged in the barrels, complex wines with great personalities. Albariño wines can either be single varieties, or be part of a blend with other characteristic grapes of the region: Treixadura, Loureira Blanca and Godello.
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.
