Tasting notes Leirana Albariño

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 Straw yellow with golden hues. Nose Aromas of white fruit on a herbal and floral base. Fine mineral undertones. Taste Wide and fresh on the palate. Light with tasty highlights of citrus notes. Acidity is very well balanced. Persistent finish.
Sight

A brilliant yellow colour.

Nose

On the nose there are floral aromas, fruits, herbs and minerals.

Taste The palate is very fresh with high acidity. Fruits are prominent together with mineral memories.
Sight Intense straw yellow colour with golden reflections. Very bright and clean wine with thin glyceric tears. Nose Very frank aromas in which the dominant floral notes are interspersed with a touch of ripe white and stone fruit and herbal aromas (of freshly cut grass and hay) on an elegant mineral background. When it opens up, subtle spicy aromas are noticed. Taste Delicious and complex wine with a nice silky, smooth, very tasty and very fresh mid palate. The notes of fruit and flowers are more balanced than on the nose. Some balsamic notes are also felt. It has an excellent acidity and a very long and persistent finish which leaves subtle mineral sensations. Very rich, elegant and enjoyable wine. 
Sight Pale yellow colour with golden reflections. Clean, bright and glyceric wine. Nose Very good and clean aromas. Very floral wine with notes of ripe white fruit, pineapple, citrus and stone fruits (outstanding notes of intense peach) are released along with subtle herbal notes on a mineral background. Taste Very fresh attack. Silky, intense, fresh and dry mid palate with a high presence of fruit. Outstanding but not unpleasant acidity, which is very well integrated. Very good finish, which leaves a subtle mineral aftertaste. A very rich and elegant white wine from the Rias Baixas. A rounded wine.

Production area 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.

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.
