Leirana A Escusa is a white wine without an appellation of origin, although it originates from the region of Rías Baixas, produced by the winery Forjas del Salñés. This is a monvarietal of Albariño.
Leirana A Escusa was created more so out of luck. The wine was being fermented by Forjas del Salnés but the production of the wine suddenly stopped. The owners decided to call upon the the infamous Raúl Pérez, who was collaborating with the winery.
The fermentation process wasn't able to be restarted and it seemed that the wine was destined to be a failure. Raúl Pérez, however, decided to try the wine and the results pleasantly surprised him.
Raúl decided to the let the must rest and then after a few days of waiting, Leirana A Escusa was born. A wine with little alcohol, due to the fermentation process, but surprisingly excellent acidity levels and an enveloping personality.
Leirana A Escusa is a product born out of a mistake... but a beautiful mistake.
