Do Ferreiro 2017 Albarino
100% Albarino | Alc: 13.5%
Rias Baixas, Spain
Complex aromas of salinity exotic fruits with wet earth/herbal tones. The palate is textured with excellent acidity.
“Produced as an exercise of blending, the 2017 Albariño is a blend from the majority of plots they work, mixing different soils, different ages of vines and different pruning methods. This feels like a powerful vintage, with great concentration and some complexity even for such a young wine. There are floral and citrus notes and a sapid, salty-like sensation on the palate. It feels like a very complete and balanced year, with all that it takes to develop nicely in bottle. All of their wines are bottled without malolactic. 90,000 bottles produced. This is normally bottled in ten lots and the wine kept with the lees.” 92+ Pts – Wine Advocate
“Spicy and fresh for a three-year-old albariño, this starts with a green apple scent and some leesy reduction. Give it time in a decanter and the white pepper spice adds saline notes, and the generous, pale apple flavors begin to open into a smooth, generous white with racy intensity.” 91 Pts – Wine & Spirits
