Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

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.

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.
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.
