Characteristics of Goliardo Caiño

Goliardo Caiño is a red wine made in the Rías Baixas by the Forjas del Salnés winery.

The winery belongs to Rodrigo Mendez, grandson of one of the founders of Rias Baixas wine production: Francisco Mendez. The winery is a small and family-orientated, yet with excellent old vines. For some years now, this winery has had the support of the great renowned winemaker Raul Perez. Goliardo Caiño is a single-variety Caiño, a variety almost extinct, from very old vines planted near the sea, which gives a special saltiness to the wine. Fermentation occurs at controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks. Malolactic fermentation takes place in French oak barrels of 225 litres, the wine is then aged for 14 months. Goliardo Caiño is a red wine from white lands. A red wine with a very dark character.

Tasting notes Goliardo Caiño

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

Ruby red. A dense tear.

Nose

A great intensity on the nose. Red fruits, currants, raspberries and wild strawberries. Balsamic herbs, vegetation, eucalyptus, toasted notes and saline memories.

Taste

Soft on the palate. Tasty, with great prominence of red fruit, mild spices and salt. Sweet tannins. Good structure, enveloping and persistent.

Sight Intense ruby â??â??red, with violet or even bluish reflections. Medium-high robe and thin tears. Nose Red wine from the Rias Baixas with a very intense aroma. Red fruits are dominant. The floral aromas and saline touches provide it with a particular character. When it opens up, the notes of red fruits become more powerful on a significant spicy background. Taste Good and wide attack. Nice mid palate dominated by the notes of red fruits and balsamic herbs. Good tannins. Long and persistent finish, with a subtle bitterness. Saline aftertaste. An elegant wine, different and with its own character. Very tasty.

Designation of Origin D.O. Rías Baixas

Winery Forjas del Salnés

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.

Imágenes y situación D.O. Rías Baixas

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.
