Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Leiras is a young white wine made by the Codorniu winery with the Albariño variety in the D.O. Rías Baixas in Galicia, Spain. 
 
Considered the oldest family-owned wine company in Spain, founded in 1551, Codorniu is best known for being one of the first wineries to produce cava. However, in recent years they have started making some still wines through various projects in other prestigious denominations in Spain and around the world. This work has made Codorniu a strong group with a presence on all five continents. 
 
Leiras comes from a vineyard located in the Valle do Salnes, in the Rías Baixas. The vines grow under the influence of the Atlantic Ocean and are harvested by hand in 20 kg crates when they reach optimum ripeness. 
 
In the winery the Leiras grapes are first destemmed and gently pressed. Then the resulting must ferments at a controlled temperature of 16-18ºC. Finally the wine rests on its lees before being stabilised and bottled. 
 
Under the name Leiras, which means estate in Galician, Codorniu presents its most illustrious Albariño. A fresh, mineral wine with Rías Baixas identity.

Pictures and situation Codorniu
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.
