Albariño Do Ferreiro 2019
Chamado assim em homenagem ao pai de Gerardo Méndez, ferreiro de profissão, o Albariño Do Ferreiro é um dos melhores brancos da região. Um alvarinho de uma pequena adega familiar, elaborado "desde antigo" que surpreende pelo seu excecional equilíbrio, frescura e redondez.

The first of the 2019 Albariño was already bottled, but it is still a bit reductive (the back labels of ALL their wines show the bottling date, to know how long with lees) and needs a little bit of time in the glass, so decanting in advance might be a good idea. In these circumstances, I guide myself by the palate, which is vibrant and has very high acidity but is very balanced, even if the wine has less alcohol than the 2018. They started harvesting early; the low yields gave power, and the early harvest brought high acidity. It's tasty and saline, with the granite minerality. 45,000 bottles produced. It's a short vintage, like 2014 and 2012.
