Characteristics of Leirana A Escusa
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.

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.
